Jong calls on NDP Government to Proceed with Site C by Months’ End

BURNABY – BC Liberal party leadership candidate Mike de Jong is calling on the NDP Government to confirm they will proceed with Site C now that the BC Utilities Commission has issued their report.

“Thousands of workers and their families are worried about their futures and deserve a decision from this government – I’m calling upon them to render a decision in favour of Site C by the end of the month,” said de Jong

The failure to proceed with Site C would result in writing off $4 billion in lost construction costs and millions more dollars in broken contracts. It would also leave British Columbia without a secure and reliable source of green, renewable energy.
