FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has to decide if a federal environmental assessment is needed to go forward with the proposed Kitimat Clean Refinery project.

To help make this decision, the agency is looking for the public’s input. They want the public’s opinion on the project itself as well as effects that they think it could have on the environment.


Any written comments have to be submitted by June 7th 2016 and any comments submitted, will be considered public.
