Hundreds gather to protest proposed hydro dam expansion in Almonte

Hundreds of Almonte residents are taking to land and water on Saturday, protesting the proposed expansion of a hydro dam on the Mississippi River.

They are concerned the expansion will damage the surrounding environment and hurt tourism.

Enerdu wants to expand the dam this fall and is waiting on approval from the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Local store owners have posted signs against the plan and residents are holding signs and chanting, hoping to stop the expansion.
