BURNCO Rock Products Ltd. is proposing an aggregate extraction project at McNab Creek in Howe Sound (approx. 10 km east of Port Mellon). This gravel extraction project would have outputs ranging from 400,000 tonnes per year to as high as 4 million Tonnes per year for special project demands.

The Future of Howe Sound Society opposes this development.

The SCCA has responded to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency's request for public input into the requirements of the environmental assessment. (Click on Read More for our response.)

The following issues are of concern by the SCCA. It is our expectation that the Terms of Reference for the Burnco Aggregate project would provide a comprehensive analysis and assessment of the following concerns.
