Suffield Panel has a choice: an NWA or a gas field. You can’t have both.
In her closing, our counsel, Jennifer Klimek, told the Panel it has a choice: “You can have an NWA or you can have a gas field. You can’t have both. You get to pick. If you allow it [the project] to go ahead you’re foreclosing on the NWA.”
Over Thursday and Friday last week, the Panel heard final argument from EnCana, our environmental coalition and the Government of Canada.
The position that the Government of Canada solidly argued was that the environmental impact statement, as well as the evidence presented by EnCana, contain such uncertainty that they don’t support the claim that the environmental effects of the Project are not likely to be significant.
