Letters: Site C double take

Re: 'BC Hydro puts hold on north bank fish enhancements near Site C', Alaska Highway News, Nov. 18, 2019

I was quickly scanning through a recent Alaska Highway News article, and these two phrases caught my eye:

article continues below

“Given the recent instability in the area, BC Hydro will not be initiating any work in the area...”

"BC Hydro does not intend to undertake works in areas of stability concern and works within the Peace River main stem…”

I thought to myself, “OMG, have BC Hydro finally come to their senses, and they are going to stop work on the dam and diversion tunnels?!?”

So then I read it a little closer, and discovered that alas, it was only about BC Hydro putting on hold plans for fish habitat mitigation works near the Old Fort landslide.

Darn.
