Local residents and aboriginal groups are being given a chance to ask questions and comment on an oilsands expansion north of Fort McMurray. Sign up as an interested party and have your voice heard! You will receive updates on the review process and can provide written submissions detailing your concerns about yet another open pit tar sands mine.

Energy giant Shell Canada Energy plans to increase bitumen production at the Jackpine Mine site by 100,000 bpd, bringing mining production to a total of 300,000 bpd.

The expansion would include space for new mining and processing facilities along the east side of the Athabasca River, approximately 70 km north of Fort McMurray.

Interested individuals and groups are now invited to provide comments and questions to a joint review panel in Ottawa. The panel, which was created to assess the environmental effects of the proposed project, must receive all comments in writing by Aug. 3, in order to be considered. All comments received by the panel will be considered public and will be posted online.

 

Comments, both in French or English, can be sent by mail, email or fax to:
