Electricity option

After reading the article on BC Hydro having operational challenges in the past eight months, I have some serious questions for Premier Horgan and his sidekick Andrew Weaver.

Horgan and Weaver want to outlaw the sale of carbon fuel vehicles in B.C. by 2040, switch home heating to electricity and add another million or two people to the Lower Mainland.

B.C. just had a little hiccup in a pipeline explosion and BC Hydro had "challenges."

Weaver did not want Site C.

What are Horgan and Weaver thinking? I recently read that BC Hydro may supply 18 per cent of total B.C. energy demand.

So B.C. may need to increase electrical generating capacity by a factor of five, six, seven or more times. What are Horgan and Weaver thinking? What is the price of electricity in 2040? Get ready to walk or bicycle. Where is the plan for the generating capacity, transmission line capacity and charging stations for total electrical society in B.C. by 2040? What are Horgan and Weaver smoking?
