Sustainable Development Minister Rochelle Squires noted the report’s recommendations will be considered as part of the licensing decision, along with ongoing Crown consultations with Indigenous communities.
“We appreciate the careful review the Clean Environment Commission has undertaken on this important project and thank all those who participated,” Squires said. “We will be considering the report and recommendations carefully over the next several months.”
The Clean Environment Commission held public hearings in Winnipeg and in La Broquerie. Expert testimony and comments were received from a number of interested participants including expert witnesses retained by participants and the public, the minister noted.
