BC Hydro is offering 2 types of opportunities for public involvement over the next couple of weeks.  One is for ‘stakeholders’ – which can include anyone with an interest and the other is labelled an ‘open house’ – also for anyone who’s interested.  The stakeholder meeting opportunity has been made known specifically to those who have previously expressed an interest in discussing the project; however, as previously stated, this does not preclude others who are interested from attending.  You must sign up for the stakeholder meetings in advance.  In case you are wondering, aA question and answer session will be included in the open house forums.

I talked to BC Hydro and they stated that input from the public from both types of forums will be recorded and included in their public participation documentation.

Here are the details I received from BC Hydro:

As requested, below are the details of the Stakeholder Meetings that are being held in the Peace Region. Since March we have been sending emails inviting stakeholders to these meetings. Emails have been sent to all previous consultation participants, those who have signed up for updates on our project website and those who have signed in and attended other BC Hydro-hosted meetings for the Site C project.

 

In general, the stakeholder meetings fit about 40 people per meeting to allow for active participation and discussion by all participants. At this time, some meetings are at, or near, capacity, with a waitlist, whereas other meetings have space.  We kindly ask that anyone intending to attend a stakeholder meeting RSVP to ensure there is space available.  Also note the Open House schedule below. There will be a Q&A planned for each open house and much more space to accommodate participants.
