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:
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.
Roger Petry, Co-coordinator
