The SCCA has written the Provincial Ministry of Engery and Mines regarding a proposal for bulk coal handling proposed by Lafarge Canada on Texada Island. The lack of public input that has been required is unprecedented for an industrial development of this size.

A million of tonnes of coal is proposed to be shipped and handled per year, but only 30 days was allowed for public response (in the middle of summer). An extended environmental review is merited.
