What was this engagement about?
BURNCO Rock Products Ltd (Proponent) is proposing to construct and operate a sand and gravel mine within the Lower McNab Valley, approximately 22 kilometres (km) southwest of Squamish and 35 km northwest of Vancouver. The projected lifespan of the proposed Project is 15 to 20 years. The average estimated rate of sand and gravel production is 1,000,000 tonnes per year.
The proposed Project is subject to review under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Act.
How did my contribution make a difference?
Citizens were invited to submit comments using an online comment form, mail, fax, or by attending open houses in Gibsons (Oct 1) and West Vancouver (Oct 2). Public comments were sought to ensure that all potential effects –environmental, economic, social, heritage and health – that might result from the proposed Project were identified for consideration as part of the assessment process.
