Iâ€™m glad to see that the Site C Dam project is finally moving ahead after 50 years of talk.
The dam is going to take a full 10 years to build before it produces a single megawatt of power, so the sooner we get things going the better. After all, who can imagine what the clean energy demands on our provinceâ€™s power grid will be a decade from now, in 2024.
It could be LNG, it could be new next-generation mines and processing plants, it could be something thatâ€™s not even on the radar yet. Whatever it is, having a robust supply of reliable, cleanly generated energy is an economic asset that gives us an ongoing edge in a world dealing with climate change and the need to lower carbon emissions.
Bravo to all those who worked to make Site C a reality.
