FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Peace Valley residents Ken and Arlene Boon, who were cc’ed on Premier Christy Clark’s letter to NDP leader John Horgan earlier this week, have written back to the Premier saying they are confused about some of the points in her letter.
Ken Boon said that he and his wife are thankful that Clark has asked Hydro to extend their lease until July 15th, but they claim that the Premier has gotten several of the details in her letter wrong, especially the issue about his and the Meek family’s homes. “It’s quite confusing to us what she’s writing about,” said Boon. “She seems to be going into the weeds on the details for some reason of the logistics and timing of relocating these homes, and a lot of it’s just not true.”
Boon explained that he and his wife have been dealing with BC Hydro’s land agents both at their home in Bear Flats and through their appropriation lawyer for some time now. Boon says that not only is BC Hydro is aware that the couple do not want their home moved, but that officials have been to their property several times to deal with logistics such as moving power lines and drilling a new well.
