Today's update: as we await a final decision, a lawyer gives his thoughts on whether the project will proceed; a radio ad campaign underway to continue to expose the truth about Site C; geothermal continues to prove itself as a smarter alternative to the hydro dam.
Cancelling Site C will Take Real Leadership
“I don’t see how the project could proceed, given the findings of the BCUC,” said David Austin, a lawyer for Clark Wilson LLP who represented the Clean Energy Association of BC during the BCUC hearings.

Geothermal: A Realistic Alternative to Hydro Dam Project

Commenting on the project, Geoscience BC Vice President of Energy Carlos Salas said: “To date BC has not realized its potential for geothermal power, even though we know that potential is significant. It is important that everyone can access good information so that we can all make appropriate and balanced decisions about future development.”
