The BC Utilities Commission is in the middle of its review of the Site C dam. They released their interim report on Sept 20, which criticized BC Hydro for failing to provide relevant and supportable materials and raised numerous questions about the project. The BCUC is currently touring B.C. and asking for public input, which will be incorporated into their final report on November 1.
This is a big opportunity to make it known that Site C is bad for B.C., and that residents don’t want to pay $9 billion to destroy an important and beautiful river valley for energy we don’t need.
