One of the biggest decisions for the NDP government will be made Monday morning regarding the fate of the controversial Site C dam.
Premier John Horgan is set to announce the province’s decision on whether to continue or end the $8.3 billion project.
Opponents say continuing construction would force ranchers off their land and possibly infringe on First Nation treaty rights.
But backers say it would be a source of clean, renewable energy that would create hundreds of jobs.
The project would flood an 83-kilometre stretch of valley on the Peace River near Fort St. John in northeast B.C.
The B.C. Utilities Commission has said the project is over budget and would not likely be completed on time.
It is scheduled to be finished by 2024.
