NDP Convention

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             Premier John Horgan attened his New Democratic Party’s convention this past weekend with an exuberant cheer to celebrate the party’s rise to power after 16 years of Liberal governments, but he quickly turned to serious issues ahead. He says the NDP faces one of the most difficult decisions in B-C’s history over the future of the 8.3 billion-dollar Site C hydroelectric dam, which has been under construction for more than two years. A recent independent government-commissioned report found the project in the northeast will likely not meet its 2024 completion date and is over budget and could cost more than 10 billion dollars. Horgan says he will conduct an intense economic review of the project in the coming weeks and a decision on the future of the project will be reached by the year’s end.
