I donâ€™t understand what all the fuss is about the Site C dam. Itâ€™s been part of the energy plan for B.C. for more than half a century, and there are already two dams on the Peace River.
The other two dams have been powering B.C. 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 letâ€™s get on with it.
