Two other B.C. rivers share the same chemistry as the Brohm, the Dean and the Blackwater.

A classic fish-versus-development battle is heating up in Squamish at the proposed site of a multibillion-dollar ski resort and housing development.

Proponents of the Garibaldi At Squamish project at Brohm Ridge north of town are pitching their development as a financial boon for the economy of the community and the province, offering thousands of jobs, tourism activity and an estimated $8 billion in construction activity and spinoffs.

However a new environmental study obtained by The Vancouver Sun indicates that the project would devastate the Brohm River -- one of the most productive wild steelhead and salmon streams in B.C.
