FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Non-government organizations and citizen groups sent an open letter to B.C. Party Leaders and recently elected MLA’s to once again protest the Site C Dam and request the ‘immediate pause’ to the project and have it sent to the BCUC for review.
“The homes of multi-generational farm families are hanging in the balance as we speak,” said Joe Foy, National Campaign Director for the Wilderness Committee. “The first two homes are at risk of being destroyed if action is not taken soon. It’s not a stretch to say that given the uncertainty of the election outcome at this time, it is simply unjust to proceed with this level of irreversible damage.”
Andrea Morrison, Executive Director for the Peace Valley Environment Association says the funds could be used elsewhere.
