The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) recommended to Minister Guilbeault to NOT grant CRED-NB’s request for a federal impact assessment of the ARC-100 nuclear reactor project for Point Lepreau. Our request included a letter of support from the group Concerned Citizens of Renfrew County and Area.
After the Minister’s rejection, the Renfrew County group did an analysis of the IAAC record. They asked: Does the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada do much anything other than recommending not to do impact assessments? The answer: looks like no, not much. The 360 staff in the Agency conduct only eight assessments per year. Read the full story on their website, HERE.
