Peace Valley Landowners Association says fight over Site C isn’t over yet

The Peace Valley Landowners Association was in court earlier this week in an attempt to halt the Site C dam project.

The association was appealing an earlier decision that ruled the province had the proper go-ahead to proceed with the $8.8-billion project.

Ken Boon is the head of the PVLA.

He cites the Joint Review Panel’s report that the costs, need and potential alternatives for the dam should be further explored, but the province ignored those recommendations.

He adds besides the PVLA case, there are a number of other options to force the cancellation of the project, many which involve First Nations.

Boon thinks the province is doing its best to make the project too big to shutdown.

But despite this, he believes it’s still possible to stop Site C, and wonders what kinds of penalties the province and taxpayers will be on the hook for if that does happen.
