Spring 2020 Project Update
On January 27, 2020 the joint Review Panel submitted its report to the federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change. We thank the review panel members, their team, and all participants for their efforts in the thorough environmental assessment of this Project over the last five years. We are committed to addressing the observations and recommendations made by the Review Panel and await the Minister’s decision, expected in fall 2020.
In its report, the Review Panel confirmed that there is a pressing need for more intermodal capacity in the GTHA; that the Project can play an important role in reducing GHGs and other air emissions at a regional or greater level; and that the selection of the south Milton site was supported by reasonable criteria and that alternate locations were properly considered.
