Green MLAs Visiting Site C
Prince George, B.C. – BC Green Leader Andrew Weaver and his two caucus colleagues Andrew Olsen and Sonia Furstenau are in Fort St. John visiting the Site C dam construction site today.
The trio flew up from Victoria last night and also aim to meet with First Nations, residents and contractors.
In a mail out to supporters, the party says it’s committed to “ban big money, stop risky projects like Kinder Morgan and the Site C boondoggle, and build the emerging economy.”
In an interview with 250News this week, (see previous story here) Weaver called the Site C project “economically reckless” while promoting the idea of a data distribution centre in Prince George and promoted Terrace as a manufacturing centre.
All of this just two days prior to the return of the legislature and the BC Liberals highly anticipated throne speech.
