A source with obvious bias would be significantly less reliable to me, because I believe the evidences of the source was selected in order to get certain results. In an unbiased case, the results of research would be based on all of the available evidences. However, to conduct a result in favour of one’s benefits, certain evidences could be discarded, and thus leads to an unreliable result. For example, as for the quality of water of Site C downstream, the source representing BC Hydro claims that the water’s the mercury content is significantly lower than the other waterbodies even under the construction of Site C. Not trusting BC Hydro’s research, I checked the report submitted by Environmental Canada. As a result, in order to show the high quality of water to continue the construction of Site C, BC Hydro’s report only considered about the level of inorganic mercury, and ignored the toxic organic mercury.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
