Site C

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             Premier Christy Clark is warning N-D-P Leader John Horgan that his request to delay work on the Site C project could cost taxpayers 600-million dollars. Horgan has asked B-C Hydro to suspend evictions and not sign any new contracts on the 8.8-billion-dollar hydroelectric dam project until a new government has gained the confidence of the legislature. But Clark has sent a letter to Horgan saying evictions of two homeowners are needed as part of a road construction project for the river diversion in September 2019 — and any delay could postpone that diversion by a year, costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. She says Horgan must reply by Saturday about whether he still wants the evictions put on hold and whether he’d like the government to issue a “tools down” request to B-C Hydro on other decisions she says are essential to maintaining the schedule — and budget — of the Site C project.
