Meanwhile, Christy Clark is creating a new subsidy for rich fossil fuel donors to her BC Liberal Party...
It’s always telling to see who in our province is able to win special treatment…

Julie Ali I find it really surprising that this government ignores the needs of the poorest citizens in order to provide for the private sector's needs. Heck, I thought this junk only happened in Alberta. But now I see it happens with the PCs, the NDPCs, and the Liberals. This is all about DeMockracy.

Joel Strawets I knew it all along. Site C Dam is for mega corps that pay little taxes while we the people have to fork the bill.
BC should be the richest province, but instead we are one of the poorest because of backdoor deals like these.
Let's face it, Crusty wants a good job when she leaves office!

Liz Adams BC Hydro has already confirmed rate increases between 2014-2018 of 28%. It is anticipated that cumulatively, rate increases over the next 10 years will be about 45% without Site C. If Site C is approved, BC Hydro intends to increase rates even further to recover the costs of Site C.
In fiscal year 2016, the company bought 14,329 GWh of power from private power producers. It paid $1.23 billion to acquire the electricity and paid additional collection and distribution costs to move it through the grid.

In the same period, BC Hydro exported 14,732 GWh of power from the province and received only $460 million. The utility’s export markets have returned less than 3.6¢ a KWh since 2003 so there have been no significant profits from exporting surplus power for 13 years. The cost of power from independent power producers (IPPs) now averages 9.8¢ a KWh.

But, despite no growth in consumption by residential, commercial and industrial consumers in British Columbia and no profitable export marketplace, BC Hydro substantially increased purchases from IPPs.

In the last five years, the delivery of cash to IPPs totaled $4.6 billion. If the established trend continues, the amount will be $8.3 billion in the next five years.

Amounts flowing to IPPs and the necessary write-off of more than $6 billion in deferred costs means in the next five years, consumers will pay rates 60% higher than they’ve paid in the last five years.

Charles Parkhurst They have set it up to reward party donors with profit. The people who pay their bills are indirectly donating money to the BC Liberal party. The truth really hurts.

John Slamen For the total cost of site c, every single home in b.c. can be equipped with solar panels. All extra power created could be sold down south. As well as the extra power created by our present dam systems that will not have to power the homes now equipped with solar power. I am open for discussion with members of the SOS Club. Thats the stuck on stupid club. Just sayin.

By the way burying power would work in many areas.

That way if that is the majority then those people should be banned from politics till next election. Also minimum pensions and 2 term limits. So who is worthy of representing the people ?

Paul Hutcheson The neo-liberals will come up with unlimited ways in which to transfer money from the people to the corporations. And despite the evidence to the contrary, the majority will continue to elect these thieves, believing that free enterprise always acts in the best interests of the people. Nothing has changed since the middle ages--we're all forelock tugging serfs grateful for the odd scrap tossed from master's table.

Gwen Morris Hey, Paul, I read somewhere that when a government owes its power to the corporations, and not to the people, why, that is the essence of Fascism!!!! Personally, I would just like to call them Fascists, and not go to all the bother of such vague labels as "neo-liberals," "neo-cons," etc. You are not quite right with referencing the middle ages. THEIR masters felt SOME responsibility for the SERFS, like a meagre cottage roof, table scraps. Crusty's answer to the lunacy of real estate prices is to offer first time buyers an opportunity to take on even bigger debt. No interest loans towards buying your first home! So the buyers lose their jobs - then what? Indentured serfs is very appropriate, but I doubt whether the lords of the castle will be offering anything beyond a bad credit report.
