KAPA reports major deficiencies in environmental process

Posted by Stop Ajax Mine on August 20th, 2014 11:36am

KAPA sent a report to the BC Environmental Assessment Office and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Office outlining major deficiencies in the current environmental assessment process. The report was also sent along with a news release to the media. In a letter signed by KAPA’s lawyer, Jenny Biem, of Woodward and Company, governments are being warned that failure to provide opportunities for the public to participate in the assessment process contravenes the promise to “give full and fair consideration to all interests” affected by the proposed mine.  An addendum attached to the letter documents many deficiencies in the assessment process, many centering on the lack of disclosure of the many toxic substances that will be released from the mine rock.
