Secondly, an excerpt from Klohn Crippen & SNC Lavelin Peace River - Site C Hydro Project Reservoir Shoreline Impacts Methodology and Criteria Report No. P05032A02-10-001; September 2009, Page 9:

shoreline impacts lead to the proposal to adopt an observational approach
for periodically reviewing and updating the reservoir impact lines after the
reservoir has been filled."
This statement should have been a show stopper!
This was followed by a LIDAR report showing 4010 active slide areas in the proposed reservoir.
Thirdly, a 1991 Report for the former Minister of Energy and Mines Jack Weisgerber:
