Waiting on New Prosperity

Canada’s Minister of the Environment has until Feb. 28 to issue a decision statement on the New Prosperity Mine Proposal.

Under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012, the government has 120 days from the release of the Review Panel report on Oct. 31, 2013.

“Prior to issuing a decision statement, the minister must first decide whether the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects, and if so, the federal cabinet must then decide whether any such significant effects are justified in the circumstances,” confirmed CEAA communications manager Lucille Jamault Wednesday.
