Business Council of B.C. president Greg D’Avignon said Thursday that if these types of projects can’t get built, there is a real problem in Canada, as they pay the bills for education, health and for fighting poverty.
Most concerning is that Canada’s investment confidence is increasingly being eroded as it becomes known as a place you can’t get things done, said D’Avignon.
While the rule of law in Canada allows for challenges to be filed in court, they are also being used as a tool when some parties don’t get their way, he said.
“That’s not how our country was built — catering to the minority,” added D’Avignon.
