Site C workers bash BC Greens

August 2, 2017 11:26 am


BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver had his own words on Site C dam thrown back at him June 8 at a protest held by an association representing contractors working on the $8.8 billion BC Hydro project.

The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA) strung hundreds of pink slips up at BC Hydro’s head office in Vancouver – one for each of the 2,245 workers currently employed at the dam site.

Those construction jobs are now at risk, should a review by the BC Utilities Commission recommend bringing the project to a halt, according to the ICBA. As part of a four-year governance agreement struck between the BC NDP and Greens, a minority NDP government would fast-track a review of the project, said Chris Gardner, ICBA president.
