Despite eco-radical opposition and attempted interference by groups like Amnesty International, construction of the Site C hydroelectric dam is well underway just outside Fort St John BC.
If you’ve been following my reporting on this file you’ll know I’m a strong supporter of this project for a number of reasons.
BC is a province with a long history of successful hydro-electric power installations and this is a region of our province decimated by the downturn in oil and gas so the project will provide high paying jobs for those out of work in the region and many Albertans as well.
I caught up with Bill Bennett, the Minister in charge of Site C at the BC Liberal convention over the weekend.
Minister Bennett like many of the rural BC members of the BC Liberal Caucus is a true blue conservative and I think you will enjoy our discussion on not only site C but also on the hypocrisy of people like David Suzuki.
