The project will be over budget and over time.
The comparative costs between the Site C and other alternatives were wrongly stated in order to promote the Site C.
The Project can be canceled immediately and alternative solutions are still comparable in over all cost.
SO basically BC Hydro sold the government a bill of goods in order to get them to commit to a mega project and the government bought it. But now that government is gone and so may be the Site C.
This reminds me of nothing so much as the Fast Cat ferry fiasco where the NDP government committed millions to a ship program that was actually not well suited to the purpose. The incoming BC Liberals shit canned the Fast Cats and sold them off as cheaply as they could in order to turn it into the biggest disaster that they could. I rode on that ferry. It was magnificent. It would have made the most amazing coastal patrol ship/emergency response/hospital ship.
I fully expect the new NDP government to turn the Site C into the biggest white elephant that they can. ON the plus side we will end up with many widely distributed alternative power sources - as the entire world is doing.
