La Tour Hydro, Vive Le Canada

Edith Kernerman
The ubiquitous hydro tower has become a part of the Canadian landscape. Are they particularly beautiful? I don’t think so although some have interesting shapes and are almost figurative at time. But I think that to become part of the landscape and not be so noticeable is substantial and meaningful and worrisome. I think it remarkable that we rarely discuss these towers and the possible effects they have on our environment, on the flora and fauna in Canada, and on the people living near them.
