What they said (VI)
From the proceedings of the Bow-Wow Parliament of March 24, 2009:
MS JONES: Mr. Speaker, there are obvious environmental considerations involved in Abitibi’s operations, whether that be with the mill, the timber or the power development project.
I ask the Premier: What assessments have government done to look at the cost of the cleanup and the restoration of areas that have been affected by environmental damage?
MS JOHNSON: Mr. Speaker, our department is doing an inventory of all of the environmental issues. That could range anywhere from logging camps to bridges and to the mill itself. Certainly, the mill will have to undergo an environmental assessment process through the decommissioning of their mill, as was done in Stephenville. The member can rest assured that all environmental issues will certainly be addressed.
