Well, well, well...
Would'a thunk that the Clarklandians would be caught fudging the Site C Jobs numbers.
Jonny Wakefield of the Alaska Highway and all its News has the story:
Only 65 per cent of the 482 people working on the Site C dam in November were from B.C.—below the 75 to 80 per cent previously claimed by BC Hydro and government officials.
That's according to documents obtained through freedom of information (FOI) by BC Building Trades, a labour group that's keeping a close eye on the $8.8 billion project...
...When asked that question in January, BC Hydro President and CEO Jessica McDonald told Alaska Highway News that in December, 75 to 80 per cent of Site C workers were from B.C. In December, Energy Minister Bill Bennett told the Vancouver Sun that B.C. residents made up 75 per cent of the Site C workforce...
Is it possible that Ms. McDonald and the Ol' Turdstormer were having a little trouble with that new fangled thing known as the old math (i.e. long division)?
But never mind all that.
Because John Yap is here!
Of course the real problem here is that Ms. McDonald's 'company' has gone with an 'open site' model that allows contractors to keep the door open to non-British Columbians.
Not that John Yap and his cabinet colleagues (and/or the fine folks running his even finer Premier) have anything to do with that or anything.
For the record, the actual FOI unearthed by the Building Trades folks is....Here.
