VANCOUVER, Oct. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - Members of the media and the public are invited to attend a one-hour briefing hosted by Ken Boon, President of the Peace Valley Landowner Association (PVLA) and Renee Ardill, a rancher and landowner in the Peace Valley. Boon and Ardill will announce the legal measures PVLA is taking on behalf of its members to protect their interests, both as impacted landowners and BC ratepayers, following the federal and provincial environmental approvals for the proposed $8 billion Site C hydroelectric dam.
The twice-shelved Site C dam project received federal and provincial environmental approval earlier this month. The BC Cabinet is now meeting in camera to decide whether to give the Site C dam project its final approval. Meanwhile, BC Hydro has distributed notice of its intention to begin construction of Site C in January 2015.
BC Minister of Energy Bill Bennett has indicated this decision is of interest to all BC ratepayers and taxpayers because of its potential impact on BC Hydro rates and the province's debt.
Additional information will be issued via CNW Newswire on Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 at 9:45 am.
