HALIFAX, NS, May 10, 2019 (Chronicleherald.ca) -Neither the federal fisheries nor environment ministers have yet seen a recommendation on whether Northern Pulp’s proposed effluent treatment plant should undergo a federal environmental assessment.
“I’m not aware of what the recommendation was,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, minister of Fisheries and Oceans, outside a funding announcement in Sherbrooke on Wednesday.
“It would probably be better to ask Sean Fraser, who is the parliamentary secretary to climate and Environment and Climate Change Canada ...”
For his part, Fraser said, “I don’t think the minister has actually seen the recommendation yet.”
