The BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) is currently conducting an inquiry into the Site C dam. They will be considering the cost of building or suspending/terminating the project, alternatives to building the dam, and expected energy demand.
Following the release of a preliminary report (on September 20), the Commission will tour BC asking for public input.
There are two ways to provide input: in writing and in person at one of 11 Community Input Sessions.
If you can make it to an Input Session we encourage you do to so (see registration info below).
HOW TO PROVIDE INPUT IN PERSON (REGISTRATION REQUIRED): Register to speak at one of 11 sessions here: http://www.sitecinquiry.com/public-community-input-sessions/
HOW TO PROVIDE INPUT IN WRITING: Submit your input to SiteCSubmission@bcuc.com.
