BC Hydro, BC Ordered To Release Secret Site C Dam Docs To First Nations

"Reports and internal records, which will be released as part of a landmark Treaty Rights case brought by the nation, will shed light on the escalating costs of the project, now billed at $16 billion"

"A B.C. Supreme Court judge has ordered BC Hydro and the B.C. government to release secret Site C dam financial and safety documents to West Moberly First Nations, but the public will not be permitted to see the information.

“For us, it opens up the books and allows us to actually take a look at what they’ve been hiding,” West Moberly First Nations Chief Roland Willson told The Narwhal.

“All the reports, everything they’re doing on this project, should be available to the public,” Willson said. “The court has said we have to hold whatever information we get in confidence and not divulge it to anyone. There’s nothing we can do about it. That’s the condition.”"
