City Underlines Site-C Neutrality

The city of Fort St. John has issued a news release in the wake of this week’s announcement by the province, that it will move forward with the regulatory environmental assessment stage of the five stage evaluation process associated with the proposed Site-C dam on the Peace River.

It notes that City Council has neither formally supported nor opposed the project, but essentially reiterates what Mayor Lantz said following the announcement by Premier Campbell, that Council is pleased to hear that the province has finally made a decision on a project that has been in discussion for the past thirty years…

The release says the city will be presenting a comprehensive report to BC Hydro, which will address a variety of issues and opportunities associated with the Site-C construction.

It adds the project will have a substantial impact on Fort St. John, and the mayor and council will begin meeting this week with Hydro representatives.
