The Council supports call for BC Auditor General to review BC government's decision to continue with Site C dam

BC Auditor General Carol Bellringer

The fight to stop the Site C dam has just begun!

Our ally author-activist Andrew Nikiforuk has written a terrific piece in the Tyee on the six things people can do to pressure the BC government to reverse its disastrous decision on the Site C dam.

His article can be read here.

His fourth suggestion on how to take action reads as follows:

4) Demand that Auditor General Carol Bellringer audit the NDP government’s highly questionable rationale for continuing this megaproject. The auditor general had planned to examine Site C but put that review on hold during the BCUC inquiry. Robert Botterell, a lawyer representing Peace Valley landowners, has now asked the auditor general to answer eight basic questions such as, “What is the likely minimum cash impact on present and future BC Hydro ratepayers and B.C. taxpayers of completing Site C vs. cancelling Site C?”

The eight questions from the Peace Valley Landowner Association and Peace Valley Environment Association can be read here.

The Council of Canadians first expressed its opposition to the Site C dam on the Peace River in Treaty 8 territory in October 2014.
