Job Fairs on Hold
Prince George, B.C.- BC Hydro has postponed the Site C job fairs that were supposed to start next week.
The delay follows a disturbance at the Site C Open house in Dawson Creek last week. There was a man who caused a disturbance inside the Fixx Urban Grill, he was escorted out by security and by all accounts, left the scene. The police were called and when they arrived, they were involved in a confrontation outside the building with a different man, a confrontation that ended with the man being shot by police.
BC Hydro says it is “evaluating its policies and procedures for public meetings. The postponement of the job fairs will give us time to complete this task. Our intent is to ensure the safety of our staff and members of the public.”
The job fairs, which were to take place in Tumbler ridge, Fort St. John and Chetwynd, will be postponed until September.
