Recently, we’ve seen a wave of letters back and forth regarding the Site C dam.
First BC NDP leader John Horgan sent one urging BC Hydro CEO Jessica MacDonald to halt work.
Then Premier Christy Clark sent one to Horgan suggesting that halting work could cost us as much as $600M.
Next, BC Green leader Andrew Weaver sent his own letter to the Premier, and even the carpenters union sent a letter to John Horgan in support of Site C.
Canada Post may turn a profit this year from Site C letters alone!
It would be comical if the consequences weren't so serious. Consider that around 2,200 jobs are at stake, and this important energy project is vitally needed to meet future demand for electricity if current trends continue.
With that in mind, I caught up with our friend Jordan Bateman of the Independent Contractors and Business Association of BC.
Watch as we discuss why this group has thrown their support behind the Site C dam project, its unionized and non-unionized workers alike, and also discuss some of the criticisms that have emerged for the project and BC Hydro itself.
