An Armchair Mayor editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE PUBLIC COMMENT period — the latest and last public comment period — on Ajax quietly came to an end at midnight last night.
More than 600 comments were submitted to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office website.
That’s a lot of comments. Unfortunately, very, very few of them will add anything to the information needed for the provincial and federal governments to make a decision.
The comment period ran for two months, and it was supposed to be about what people think of the joint federal-provincial report summarizing the pros and cons of the project.
Almost everyone ignored that fact.
