Kerry Morash, Minister of Environment and Labour, released a discussion paper on Oct. 7 to help gather input on the appropriate standards for pit operations. The new deadline for submissions is Wednesday, Feb. 15. “Stakeholders indicated they needed more time to consider the discussion paper and submit their responses,” said Mr. Morash. “In this instance we have the discretion and we’re happy to extend the deadline so we can gain valuable information from the public.” To obtain a copy of the discussion paper on pit operations contact 1-800-567-7544 or visit www.gov.ns.ca/enla/ .
