John Horgan isn't even Premier yet and he's already trying to kill thousands and thousands of great paying jobs in BC's north.
Horgan announced that he sent BC Hydro CEO Jessica McDonald a letter urging BC Hydro to stop work on the Site C dam and no longer issue any new contracts.
Watch as I show you how devastating this will be to a region already affected by low oil and gas prices. And how despite all the virtue signalling from the Greens and NDP about climate commitments, scrapping the Site C project will mean BC won’t be able to meet its climate goals.
So why do Mr. Horgan and Mr. Weaver espouse the virtues of fighting climate change but refuse to acknowledge what many reputable scientists and energy analysts have already noted — that it will be impossible for BC to reduce emissions and meet climate goals if we don’t construct the Site C dam.
They’re ignoring facts about what this project will provide BC, never mind the thousands of potential job losses in a region already hurting badly, and bound to be hurt worse by an anti-fossil fuel agenda.
By ignoring those facts, they’re proving that the real power behind their decisions is the foreign funded environmental lobby that British Columbians are now forced to bow to.
