Site C Review

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              B-C’s new N-D-P government is making good on its election pledge to order an independent review of the multibillion-dollar Site C dam in the province’s northeast. But critics say the move threatens thousands of construction jobs on what was a signature megaproject for former premier Christy Clark. The review by the B-C Utilities Commission will begin later this month, with a final report due by November, though work will continue on the project . Site C would be the third dam on the Peace River, flooding an 83-kilometre stretch of valley, and has faced fierce opposition from local First Nations, landowners and farmers.
