Site C

With regards to the Site C hydro project, I firmly believe we will sell every kilowatt hour produced at this dam. We are so fortunate to have so much clean hydro power in this province. What about powering the electric cars that will be here in ever growing numbers?

We will sell what we do not use, that is a fact. We are in a great position to increase government revenue and add to extra employment.

Our new government needs to wake up to this in the wake of removing tolls at bridges and increasing other spending plans. Regarding the United Nations panel wanting us to stop construction of the dam, I say mind your own business.

We can’t afford any more foolish mistakes. This dam must finally be built.
