To our neighbours in Milton:
In January, the federal government approved CN’s Milton Logistics Hub following an extensive environmental review led by an independent joint Review Panel. The approval includes 325 legally binding conditions designed to protect the community and the environment.
CN has listened carefully and refined the Milton Logistics Hub based on feedback from multiple sources in order to minimize impacts, while helping the economy recover by creating over 1,000 direct and indirect jobs and adding much-needed infrastructure to serve a growing region.
We are aware there are differing views about the project, and we will continue to engage with all members of the community in a respectful manner. We will be seeking feedback on a Community Liaison Communication Process that is designed to share information, collect feedback, and address potential issues through construction and operation. As part of this process, a Community Consultation Committee will be established.
With the implementation of the conditions and CN’s commitment to mitigation, this is expected to be our most environmentally advanced terminal in North America.
CN welcomes the government’s intention to proceed with a regional airshed strategy to address the existing air quality conditions in the region and support long-term health and environmental benefits for those that live in Halton Region and the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
Our commitment to you is that we will build and operate this project with an uncompromising safety standard; meet or exceed applicable environmental requirements; continue to support community institutions such as the Halton Learning Foundation and Wilfrid Laurier University; and deliver jobs and new economic opportunities to Milton families.
CN has been part of the Milton community for over 100 years. We are committed to investing in Canada’s infrastructure, and the communities we serve, for years to come.
CN Executive Vice-President, Corporate Services and Chief Legal Officer
