Two experts, working for the Peace Valley Landowner Association, are expected to tell the government to cancel the project.

Premier John Horgan has invited six energy experts to brief his cabinet Thursday afternoon ahead of its decision on the future of Site C.

The experts include David Austin of the Clean Energy Association of B.C., David Craig of Consolidated Management Consultants, Colleen Giroux-Schmidt of Innergex Renewable Energy, Mark Jaccard of Simon Fraser University’s school of resource and environmental management, energy economist Robert McCullough, and Karen Tam Wu of the Pembina Institute.

Both Austin and McCullough, who have been working for the Peace Valley Landowner Association, are expected to tell the government to cancel the project in favour of alternatives, according to a Globe and Mail report.

Giroux-Schmidt and Jaccard are not expected to advocate one position over the other, according to the Globe.
