Site C would get BCUC review if given environmental approval certificate


first_img“Then the BCUC would be allowed to take a look at how the cost of that project is recovered from ratepayers, so they would come into the picture if in fact the province decides to proceed with the project.” Actually it is a joint federal/provincial review and according a lawyer for the union representing B.C. Hydro workers, the Commission may yet underscore the gap between reviews. The Globe and Mail has also quoted Jim Quail as saying, “What’s missing in the current joint review panel process is whether or not the development of the Site C dam actually makes economic and logistical sense for the B.C. Hydro energy grid.” The panel hearings continue today in Dawson Creek with a Métis Community Session, before crossing the border to Peace River for Friday and Saturday hearings. Then it’s back to Fort St. John, next week, where the review will conclude on the 23rd. – Advertisement -The panel is expected to start writing its report by February 3, and if all goes as planned, it will be presented to the Federal Environment Minister late in April.last_img read more

SACRAMENTO – Chris Webber had 20 points and 16 rebounds against his former team, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Sacramento Kings 111-98 Tuesday night. It was Webber’s second game in Sacramento since being traded by the Kings last February. He is still fondly remembered, evidenced by the standing ovation he received from the Arco Arena crowd when introduced. Webber jogged to the Kings bench and gave coach Rick Adelman a handshake and a hug just before the game began. Andre Iguodala scored 22 points and the 76ers snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Kings, who they had not beaten since a 107-104 overtime victory Dec. 20, 2000. There will be little time to savor the win for the 76ers, who play at Phoenix on Wednesday night and are in the midst of their longest road stretch of the season – seven games in 11 days. Allen Iverson had a rare off game, as the NBA’s leading scorer finished with 19 points, but Philadelphia ended its two-game losing streak. Sacramento, an uncharacteristic 8-10 at home, wasted a near career effort from center Brad Miller, who scored 36 points and had 11 rebounds. Miller’s career high is 38 points.
