Premier to be in Hudson's Hope tomorrow for press conference

By Energeticcity.ca Staff

Premier Campbell will be in Hudson’s Hope tomorrow for a special press conference at the W.A.C. Bennett Dam.

Rumours are running rampant that the Province will officially announce that Site C will move into stage 3 at the Monday press conference.  

On Friday, the Vancouver Sun quoted Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom as saying he will not wait for detailed engineering and environmental studies before choosing whether or not to proceed with the proposed Site C project.  But Lekstrom says that quote was taken out of context.  Lekstrom says whatever happens with the proposed project, he wants the decision made once and for all.

According to BC Hydro the topic of the press conference is the "future of clean energy in British Columbia."

Lekstrom wouldn’t comment on the nature of the news conference.
