Reasons for a Federal Assessment
On March 4, 2011, it was determined that an environmental assessment was required in relation to the project because Fisheries and Oceans Canada considered taking action in relation to subsection 35(2) of the Fisheries Act.
Project Description (as posted in the Notice of Commencement)
The construction of the single-storey shopping centre will involve clearing and grubbing, construction of private roads, excavation/filling for site grading, blasting (excavation in bedrock), installation of the necessary surface water management infrastructure (e.g., retention pond), reconfiguration of public accesses (construction of a four-lane road), and necessary associated activities (wood debris shredding, silt barrier, collection and planting of plantings, etc.). The project also includes wetland filling (marshes and swamps) and the diversion of the Bas-Saint-François.
The project scope includes all components of the project as proposed by the proponent as well as all other works, temporary structures and activities directly related to the project (e.g., wood debris shredding, silt barrier, collection and planting of cuttings).
The environmental assessment was terminated on July 8, 2011 because the proponent had withdrawn the project.
