Environmental law 101

Jerome Kennedy, QC. Great lawyer.

Just not so great an environmental lawyer. As Dave Bartlett reported for the Telegram last weekend:
In December, Finance Minister Jerome Kennedy told The Telegram he asked federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty to consider investing in a transmission line for the proposed Lower Churchill hydroelectric project as part of a regional energy corridor.

"That's something that we could start immediately, it's something that we wouldn't have to wait for the environmental assessments because, essentially, we'd simply be building a transmission line," said Kennedy at the time.


Williams agrees Kennedy misspoke when he said no environmental assessment would have to be done.
