Click the link below to view AWA’s letter submitted to the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) on February 28 outlining our concerns with ECCC’s proposed approach for coal mining effluent regulations scheduled for implementation in 2023.
After reviewing the discussion document as well as participating in the February 16th Info Session hosted by ECCC, we have significant concerns with the regulations being proposed for implementation under the Fisheries Act, which are summarized in the list below, and outlined in greater detail in our letter.
Summary of Concerns:
We hope to see these concerns addressed in the next set of revisions for the Proposed Regulations scheduled for publication in the Canada Gazette at a future date in 2022.
