Andrea Morrison of the Peace Valley Environment Association agreed, noting that BC Hydro’s actions undermine the extensive public participation that took place in the recent environmental assessment hearings.
 
“Acting as though the project will proceed – regardless of the processes that have been undertaken to assess whether it is the right thing to do for the province – shows a complete lack of respect for the processes and the many people involved in them,” she said.
“British Columbians from all over the province, as well as local residents and First Nations from the Peace region, have spent countless hours researching and submitting their rationales to demonstrate why this project is not necessary. They participated in BC Hydro’s consultation sessions as well as the lengthy and costly EA process, only to have BC Hydro act as though none of these conversations and presentations ever took place,” said Morrison.
