C-38: David Tilson and the megaquarry

Noting his pursuit of a federal environmental assessment for a proposed quarry in his riding, the NDP suggests Conservative MP David Tilson should be voting against the budget implementation act.

With the Conservatives’ Trojan Horse Budget Bill gutting our system of environmental assessments and reviews even further, we hope MP Tilson will stand up for his constituents and vote against bill C-38.

I asked Mr. Tilson last night if he had any response to the NDP release and he wrote as follows.

I continue to work to ensure that federal environmental assessment regulations are applicable to this project.

The Ontario government has ordered an environmental assessment, but the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency decided that a federal assessment was not required.
