Update on Government of SK Response to RCE SK Yancoal Submission

Dear RCE Saskatchewan Colleagues,

You will recall that RCE Saskatchewan has to date made two submissions to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment in response to its request for public input on the proposed Yancoal Southey Potash Mine's Environmental Impact Study (EIS). Please see attached the most recent response from the Hon. Herb Cox, Minister of Environment, to RCE Saskatchewan's latest letter (which is also attached for your reference). The original RCE Saskatchewan submission can be found on our website:

http://www.saskrce.ca/node/2573

While the RCE is disappointed that there will not be a hearing under section 14(1) of the Saskatchewan Environmental Assessment Act to gather what we see as important additional information needed to assess the proposed project, we will continue to keep you informed of our next steps as an RCE. Again, thank you to Dr. Garth Pickard and Dr. Ray Ambrosi for their good work on all of this.

Sincerely,

Roger Petry, Co-coordinator
RCE Saskatchewan

SK Ministry of Environment Reply to RCE SK Submission on Yancoal EIS

Dear RCE Saskatchewan Colleagues,

As you are aware from earlier correspondence, RCE Saskatchewan made a submission to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment in response to its request for public input related to the proposed Yancoal potash mine near Southey. Attached please find the reply from the Minister of Environment, Hon. Herb Cox, to the RCE's submission.

"Love Your Lake" Ribbon Cutting, Katepwa Point Provincial Park

2016-07-01 15:00

District of Katepwa is very excited to be part of a program called Love Your Lake.

Love Your Lake is a shoreline assessment and stewardship program developed by Watersheds Canada and the Canadian Wildlife Federation. We will be working with Lower Qu'Appelle Watershed Stewards, Agricultural and Ag Food Canada and U and K Greenhouses to deliver this program to Katepwa Lake.

Natural shorelines are extremely beneficial as they act as filters helping to reduce pollutants that enter lakes, help to protect against erosion and provide vital habitat for birds, mammals and fish. But our actions, sometimes unknowingly, can have a huge impact on this delicate interface. Love Your Lake will recommend simple, yet meaningful, actions specific to each property that shoreline property owners can implement.

We are looking forward to delivering this program this summer would like to invite you to a ribbon opening on Friday, July 1 at 3pm at the Katepwa Point Provincial Park.

Sincerely

Mayor Rick Pattison
