A survey has found half of the province supports the Site C decision


A new survey has found that over half of the province agrees with the government's decision to move ahead with Site C.

The survey was conducted by the Angus Reid Institute, and found 52% of respondents were in favour of the decision, and just 26% were against it.

The largest support came from those who voted Liberal in the last election, at 78%, while only 44% of NDP voters and 42% of Green voters were happy with the decision.

The NDP party promised a full review of the dam in their election campaign.

On December 11th, Premier Joh Horgan announced that the dam would continue, saying the project has gone past the point of no return.

The BC Utilities Commission's review found the project is now around $2 billion over budget, and behind schedule.
