KGHM-Ajax Public Consultation Period
Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops (specifically City Council) will be hosting a town hall meeting to share its consultant’s preliminary review of KGHM International Inc.’s (KGHM) submission to the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BC EAO). Following the presentation, the public will be invited to ask questions of SLR Consulting regarding the information presented.
This public meeting will take place at Thompson Rivers University Grand Hall from 6:00 to 10:00 pm on Friday, March 18th, 2016.
The meeting will begin with an overview by SLR Consulting on its initial findings of KGHM's submission and which will include an initial response to the questions posed by the City of Kamloops and residents at the City-hosted public input session on September 28th, 2015. The remainder of the meeting will be an opportunity for the public to seek clarification from the consultant on their presentation. Members of the public who wish to speak will be allocated three minutes to put forward their questions and comments.
This City-led initiative does not replace the process being run by the BC Environmental Assessment Office. The intent of the meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to hear the preliminary findings from SLR before they officially submit their comments to the EAO prior to the end of the 75-day public comment period.
