TransCanada spokesperson Chris Breen also disagrees that the existing review process is a self-assessment.
“We hire SENES Environmental, they are an accredited and credible environmental consulting firm. They conduct these studies on our behalf and then we post the results publicly, people comment on those results and then the ministry observes that process and they ensure that any concerns or comments that are raised must be addressed by us in a substantive manner,” said Breen.
“From that perspective, I’d say there are two separate groups of health and environmental professionals totally independent from TransCanada who are involved here.”
A similar request for the Minister of the Environment to implement a more thorough environmental assessment was made by the Town of Milton in 2007 with regard to the gas-fired power plant that is now under construction.
That request was rejected.
“This is just one of many actions that this council will be taking to bring the concerns of Oakville residents to the attention of the Province,” said Burton.
“We’ve engaged legal and environmental experts to help us prepare evidence-based actions to prevent the proposed power plant project from impacting our residents.”
