SOSS Coalition Calls for Immediate Arms-Length Regulation to Protect Environment

December 14, 2010

Halifax, NS - A coalition of environmental, First Nations and inshore fisheries organizations is calling on the Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and federal governments to act immediately on the Wells Inquiry recommendation that arms-length reulation needed to protect the environment and safety of workers in the offshore.

The Wells Commission was established by the Newfoundland and Labrador government to review safety in the offshore after the tragic crash of a helicopter on March 12, 2009, resulting in the loss of seventeen lives.
