Canada Wants More in Columbia River Treaty

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Canada says the U.S. should provide greater compensation for the benefits it gets under a treaty governing operations of the Columbia River. That’s the opposite of what the U.S has recommended if the treaty is renegotiated — the U.S. wants to provide less for benefits such as reduced flood risk. Under the treaty, Canada stores water behind three dams. The U.S. paid Canada $64 million for the flood control. And every year, it sends Canada half the electricity generated downstream. The treaty dates to 1964. As of next year, it will allow either side to give 10 years notice of intent to renegotiate or cancel. So, this year, both sides are laying out their bargaining positions.
