This week, we're looking at two important developments for the Site C Clean Energy Project. First, BC Hydro and Saulteau First Nations have reached agreement on terms for an impact benefits agreement. And a new poll shows growing support for the Site C Clean Energy project. Up to 81 per cent of respondents could support Site C in the right circumstances. Also this week, we share some information on the importance of reliable information when the power goes out. It's all about using new tools such as social media to support our customers.
