Site C decision to come down Monday morning


The NDP government’s long-awaited decision on the fate of the Site C dam will come down Monday.

Premier John Horgan will make the announcement at 11:30 a.m. in the library rotunda at the B.C. legislature, the same location where former Premier Christy Clark announced Site C’s approval in December 2014.
