Site C is the most expensive public project in B.C. history. Hydro users are already facing alarming rate increases—before this $9 billion megadam saddles B.C. with at least 70 years of debt. And based on average cost overruns, Site C could cost closer to $17 billion!
We will all end up footing the bill through skyrocketing hydro rates for power we don’t need.
The simple truth is that Site C represents 1950s thinking applied to 2017 challenges. It’s not a smart way to create jobs—each Site C job costs you $3.4 million!
We can do better. The alternatives are far cheaper and provide more long term jobs than Site C.
Site C will destroy food-producing land, critical wildlife habitat, and First Nations’ cultural heritage and land. This adds up to an inconceivable loss that British Columbians can’t afford.
