Northwatch Submission on Metal Mining Effluent Regulations

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

As a preamble to our comments on the proposed amendments to the Metal Mining Liquid Effluent Regulation under the Fisheries Act, I would like to convey our appreciation for the many years of work that you and your colleagues in Environment Canada and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans have invested in the review and modernization of this regulation. It has been a demanding exercise for the many parties involved, but I expect for none more than for you and your department. You are to be commended for having kept the process in forward motion, and for having now reached this important milestone.
