As many of you have heard, there has been an announcement by the provincial government to reject the Northern Gateway project as currently presented.
However, the Government of Canada has changed the way the final decision can be made.
The Conservative (Harper) government has changed laws so that any decision by the Joint Review Panel (JRP) can be over-ridden by the Cabinet. We must maintain our resolve!
