The Government of British Columbia has also requested the CEAA 2012 process, a substitution to the environmental assessment, which the agency is also seeking public input.
The Minister of the Environment, Leona Aglukkaq may only approve the substitution request if she is of the opinion that the B.C. process would be an appropriate substitute for an environmental assessment.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required, as well as the minister’s decision on the substitution request.
All comments received will be considered public and must be submitted by July 28 to AuroraLNG@ceaa-acee.gr.ca, and is also encouraged to be sent directly to the agency’s office at the following address:
