C-NLOPB has “never seen as much public reaction”

The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board said it has never seen as much public reaction as it has against the project that would see Corridor Resources Inc. drilling a deep-water exploratory oil well in the Old Harry area of the Gulf between western Newfoundland and the Magdalen Islands. The CBC reports in its article today that public protests have taken place in the four Atlantic provinces and Quebec in just the last few weeks, and that no less than fifty submissions highlighting concerns have been submitted. The C-NLOPB has asked highly respected lawyer and former New Brunswick politician to conduct an independent review, which will include public input and the production of a website – to be launched shortly.
