Controversy over the proposed Site-C dam has been circulating for some time now.
In February the Round Two Consultation summary was released. Over 900 residents took part in the process. The report showed many residents were concerned about the local impact.
If the government chooses to proceed with stage three, in the consultation process, it will focus on environmental assessment and likely run about two years.
Like the residents of North Peace, local candidates in the upcoming provincial election have strong feelings on the issue. Here is Liberal candidate Pat Pimm followed by NDP candidate Jackie Allen on their position on Site-C.

Sue Arnston from the Refederation Party did not return Moose FM’s phone calls on the topic.
The Site-C dam is not set in stone because the government has to review public consultations. If the government chooses to proceed with stage three, in the consultation process, it will focus on environmental assessment and likely run about two years.
