Many thanks to John Horgan for taking expedient action on protecting Peace Valley farm homes: BC NDP leader John Horgan wrote to BC Hydro CEO Jessica MacDonald expressing concern for families and communities impacted by the government’s decision to expropriate lands for the advancement of Site C.
Mr. Horgan states:
“I believe there is no demonstrated short term need to force these families from their homes, and because the status of the next governments of British Columbia are uncertain, the threat of imminent removal of residents from their expropriated homes and property is unreasonable.”
Mr. Horgan ended with an urgent request that BC Hydro not finalize any contracts until a new government has gained the confidence of the legislature to govern and decide future policy regarding the Site C project.
