FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – According to an article in the Globe and Mail, B.C. NDP Leader John Horgan says he would consider his options in regards to the Site C project after the election this upcoming May.

Horgan sand in an interview that while he “would be prepared” to shut down the controversial dam, he doesn’t have enough information in order to make a formal decision.

The article also states that former NDP premier Mike Harcourt called Site C a “disaster” destined to go way over budget and said it would be in the province’s interest to cut its losses “as early as possible.”

Horgan says he believes the project isn’t “past the point of no return”, Christy Clark has promised to push the project to that stage, but he says the project would need a fast and thorough review by the B.C. Utilities Commission after the election.
