VANCOUVER, BC — This morning the B.C. Utilities Commission has announced the schedule for the Site C Inquiry Commission Panel to gather feedback from First Nations on the Panel’s Site C Inquiry preliminary report.
The First Nations Input Sessions will be held in Prince George, Fort St. John, Vancouver and Victoria. The sessions are open to the public, however, opportunities to speak are only available for First Nations. Those peaking spots are only available on a pre-arranged basis.
The BCUC asks that submissions at the First Nations Input Sessions be limited to the contents of the preliminary report and any other specific matters the Panel may seek submissions on. Submissions made on matters outside of the scope of the Inquiry will form a part of the public record, but will not be considered by the Panel.
