Public Submissions to Environmental Assessment of Northern Pulp’s Effluent Treatment Facility
Many individuals, organizations, professionals, concerned citizens and local knowledge holders made submissions to the provincial EA process. They contain valuable knowledge of the area and draw attention to errors, gaps and contradictions in Northern Pulp’s application. We hope Minister Miller gives these submissions the attention they deserve. Thanks for sharing them with FONS.

"I simply cannot see how anyone could reach such a conclusion about wetlands from the paltry amount of data provided. It is not okay for a proponent to seek environmental approvals now, without having completed the necessary work, under the promise that it will be done at a later date, after approvals are already received. That’s not how environmental assessments should work.”
