‘What’s all the fuss about the Site C dam?’

Site has been part of BC's energy plans for more than half a century

Dear Editor,

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about the Site C dam. It’s been part of the energy plan for BC for more than half a century and there are already two dams on the Peace River. These other two dams have been powering BC for decades with the cleanest energy possible. Site C will take optimal advantage of the massive amount of water stored upstream by the Bennett Dam, reusing that water a third time to generate enough clean electricity to power 450,000 homes per year before flowing out to sea. Site C will also be built with most up-to-date 21st Century energy and environmental technology, and the project has been studied and reviewed to death. Enough is enough. Building the much-needed Site C dam is a no-brainer so let’s get on with it.
