We petitioned for a Federal Environmental Assessment on the project with particular emphasis on negative impacts to birds. We were assured by the Federal Minister of Environment Canada that site specific studies should and would be done and that all reports would be public. J.D. Irving, Ltd. has stated that they have completed site specific studies as demanded but have adamantly refused any public access to these reports.
