I almost had a chance to dragon boat down the river in 2002, as several teams were taking
part in a 35 km rally.
If you have ever travelled in the American Southwest, and seen the man-made Hoover Dam
and the man made Lake Mead which devasted the Glen Canyon, and countless Anasazi
archeological sites, you might start to have an idea of what the 3 Gorges Dam project has
caused... but on a much more massive scale.
Now add that Canada's Export Development Corporation has funded millions of dollars
to this devastation and wonder if the human displacement and loss of land and archeological
sites was worth it...
