The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) is seeking comments from the public on the Aurora LNG project and its potential effects on the environment, in order to establish whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed LNG project, which is located near Prince Rupert, British Columbia (B.C.).
The Agency is also seeking comments on the Government of B.C.’s request for the substitution of the B.C. environmental assessment process for the CEAA 2012 process if it is determined that an environmental assessment is required.
In accordance with CEAA 2012, the Minister of the Environment, the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, must approve the substitution request if she is satisfied that the conditions for substitution under CEAA 2012 are met and if she is of the opinion that the B.C. process would be an appropriate substitute for an environmental assessment of this project by the Agency.
All comments received will be considered public. Written comments must be submitted by 28 July 2014.
