A Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) has been prepared for the project and is available for a 30-day public review period from July 9, 2020 to August 7, 2020.

Interested persons are encouraged to review the TESR and provide comments by August 7, 2020. If, after consulting with the Ministry, you have serious unresolved concerns, you have the right to request the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (11th Floor, Ferguson Block, 77 Wellesley Street West, Toronto, Ontario, M7A 2T5) to issue a Part II Order (“bump-up”) for this project. A Part II Order may lead to the preparation of an individual environmental assessment. A copy of the “bump-up” request should be forwarded to the addresses below. If there are no outstanding concerns after August 7, 2020, the project will be considered to have met the requirements of the Class EA.

If you have questions or comments, please feel free to submit  here by August 7, 2020.
