NDP members against Site C attempt to reopen debate to party leadership

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — Several members of the B.C. New Democratic Party are vowing to continue their fight in stopping construction of the Site C dam by signing a letter demanding a reconsideration of the government’s decision to continue building the dam to the party’s provincial council.

According to The Vancouver Sun, the BC NDP’s governing body between conventions met in New Westminster over the weekend, where the 10-page letter was submitted. In their letter, the group of “progressive political and social activists who … worked hard to oust Christy Clark & Co. from power” are demanding that the NDP  government’s decision to continue with Site C be reconsidered or reversed.

“We believe the NDP cabinet was misled in its ill-considered decision,” reads the letter, which was signed by more than twelve NDP members and supporters from across the province. The letter comes exactly a week after an anti-Site C convention was held by the Peace Valley Solidarity Initiative in Victoria.

The letter also calls on the provincial cabinet to release the documents it based its decision to continue with Site C on.
