ICBA supports Site C and responsible resource development
(Burnaby, April 18, 2017) Today’s message from Premier Christy Clark about the benefits the Site C Clean Energy Project will provide is important as British Columbians choose which party will lead the province for the next four years.
With our population expected to grow by another million British Columbians in the next 20 years, the demand for clean power will increase 40 per cent. The Site C Clean Energy Project will provide the power needed for 100 years and provide thousands of construction and operations jobs.
“The stakes are high in this election for construction workers and all British Columbians. Both the NDP and the Green Party have expressed hostility to these kinds of responsible resource developments and major infrastructure projects, and that creates a risk to our economy,” says Chris Gardner, President of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA). “Site C, as well as the Kinder Morgan pipeline, Pacific NorthWest LNG and the George Massey Tunnel replacement will mean thousands of jobs in BC. We need leadership that will get to ‘yes’ on these kinds of developments.”
