A report from the Joint Review Panel on the Site C Clean Energy Project has been released. The report was compiled by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the BC Environmental Assessment Office. It says the proposed dam, which would be the third hydroelectric facility built on the Peace River, has a number of benefits. Those include the creation of clean, cost-effective energy, and the opportunity for local and regional economic growth from jobs created by the dam. The panel also warned about what effect the creation of an 83 kilometer reservoir on the Peace River would have. Both the Federal and Provincial governments have 120 days to make a decision on whether or not the Site C project will go ahead, once they review the report and it’s 50 recommendations.
