Initiative petition title: An initiative to cancel the Site C Dam project
Initiative petition summary: The purpose of the initiative draft Bill is to stop construction of the Site C Dam project currently underway on the Peace River. The draft Bill states that the May 2014 Joint Federal-Provincial Review Panel report on the project was found to have unsupported claims and procedural inconsistencies, and that a November 2017 BC Utilities Commission report concluded that the project is not needed for future energy power in British Columbia. The draft Bill would require the Site C Dam project to be cancelled, and would come into effect on Royal Assent.
