April 26, 2016 — Ottawa — Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, announced today that the proposed Black Point Quarry Project, located in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects and it may proceed.
In reaching her decision, the Minister considered the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s Environmental Assessment Report. The Report includes the Agency’s conclusions and recommendations on the potential environmental effects of the project, the proposed mitigation measures, the significance of any adverse environmental effects, and the follow-up program.
In her Environmental Assessment Decision Statement, the Minister established legally binding conditions, which include mitigation measures and follow-up requirements that the proponent must comply with throughout the life of the project.
The next steps are for the proponent to obtain the necessary regulatory approvals from Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Transport Canada.

OTTAWA – Member of Parliament Rodger Cuzner made the following statement in the House of Commons today.
“Mr. Speaker, on this Bell “Let’s Talk Day”, I rise to pay tribute to an exceptional young lady from my riding, Becky Hanna, a happy kid with great friends, an excellent student at Cape Breton University and a varsity athlete.
She had a great life going on except for one thing: bulimia nervosa, a severe disorder that she hid from her family and friends for a year, a compulsion that was more of an addiction that yielded a binge-then-purge cycle that she could not stop no matter how hard she tried. Some days Becky would purge once or twice, but other days it would be seven or eight times, taking a heavy toll on her body and a heavier one on her mind.
Becky realized she was not alone and her condition was not uncommon. With the support of her family and friends, she works every day to confront her demons.
On Becky’s behalf, I ask the House to visit Becky Hanna’s Facebook page and share her video with family and friends. On behalf of all parliamentarians, let me commend and thank this exceptional young lady for sharing her important message.“

Cape Breton-Canso M.P. Rodger Cuzner made the following statement in the House of Commons today
T’was the week before Christmas, and all through the land;
A spankin’ new government was now in command.
We will soon settle in for debating and voting;
But after 10 years over there, forgive me for gloating.
It began August 2nd, an eleven week campaign;
Which Canadian voters believed was insane.
Conservatives were disappointed, not pleased with their tally;
They expected more bounce from the Rob Ford’s famous rally.
Their refugee plan left them wounded and smartin’;
When it became disemboweled by Rosemary Barton.
And the cultural practice tip line, add that to the list;
Yes the Tories were angry, but the Dippers they were…. pretty angry too.
The loss left them stinging, all wounded and sore;
When all they said they needed was 35 seats more.
And our Green Party Leader has no room to laugh;
Her fledgling young party was reduced by one half.
Canadians have spoken and have done so with zeal;
They want hope for the future and change that is real.
