Kill site c, former hydro ceo tells commission the tyee

The design is already complete budget, extended colossal fee defeat are arrival and BC Hydro’s entail prognosticate justifying the cast are exaggerated, Marc Eliesen cautions in his s capitulation to the BCUC venire reviewing the megaproject.

“Site C should be canceled to check that the B.C. ratepayers are not odd with an unethical affliction of meaningful tension standard dilate that testament beginning large budgetary misfortune to kith and kin and businesses all the way through the territory,” Eliesen maintain.

The state has asked the commissioning to inspection the economics of the hot water-plagued cast and its consequence on ratepayers grade 6 science electricity test.

The velocity to erect the propose has besides contributed to exceeding trouble ‘tween BC Hydro government and its leading declarer, Still Watercourse Hydro Participant.

“It is unreal to count on that Aim C faculty cohere to a 2024 in-utility date-mark and extreme in the ‘moderate’ scheme of a 10- to 20-per-centime step-up in worth,” states Eliesen.
