Having considered the purpose of the Environmental Assessment Act, the approved Terms of Reference, the Environmental Assessment, and the Ministry Review and comments received, I hereby give approval to proceed with the Undertaking, subject to the conditions set out below.


My reasons for giving approval are:

  1. The Proponent has complied with the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act.
  2. The Amended Environmental Assessment has been prepared in accordance with the approved Terms of Reference.
  3. On the basis of the Proponent’s Amended Environmental Assessment and the Ministry Review, the Proponent’s conclusion that the advantages of this undertaking outweigh its disadvantages appears to be valid.
  4. No other beneficial alternative method of implementing the Undertaking was identified.
  5. The Proponent has demonstrated that the environmental effects of the Undertaking can be appropriately managed and mitigated.
