Please enter your information below to join our Raven Action mailing list. In the months ahead, we’ll keep you informed about public comment periods, letter-writing opportunities and petitions, community events, and other actions you can take to help ensure that the proposed Raven Mine doesn't get approved, or built.
It is crucial for citizens to take action in two major events that are likely to happen in the months ahead:
THE 50-DAY COMMENT PERIOD REQUIRED AS PART OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT. The revised Compliance Coal Application/EIS was submitted to the CEAA and BC EAO in October 2014. The 30-day screening period to determine if it contains the required information will begin in early November. A decision by the BC EAO and CEAA on whether or not the Application contains the required information will most likely come the first week in December 2014. If the Application/EIS is accepted, then the environmental assessment will move into the 180-day Review Stage. The 50-day public comment period will commence soon after the Application/EIS Review Stage begins. We will keep you informed - and will follow up with open house information, with simple directions on how you can participate, making it easy to take action.
THE MINISTER’S REVIEW, which results in a Ministerial decision to deny or approve the Application/EIS, following the 180-day environmental assessment. Best estimate on this would be the summer of 2015
Together, let's make sure the Raven Coal Mine never happens.
