Site C will be one of the largest projects that British Columbia has ever experienced, and that means stability for construction labour is critical. Thanks to an agreement signed last week union, non-union and First Nations contractors will all have opportunities to work on Site C. And work continues on Horsey Substation near Victoria, to replace aging equipment and reduce outages for the 75,000 customers it serves. CHEK News reports on the project and a recent visit to the substation by Minister Bennett. And June is National Electricity Month. The Canadian Electricity Association has a new website to educate Canadians about the importance of electricity.
