We appreciate the invitation to comment on the Ministry’s Environmental Mitigation and Offsets discussion paper and ideas for a proposed policy (the “Policy”), as well as your willingness toanswer various questions we raised in previous correspondence. It is our understanding that further public consultations will be held regarding the proposed Policy in the Spring or Summer, as the Policy is drafted. However, we did want to make some general comments on the current Discussion Paper and on our hopes and concerns regarding the Policy as currently envisaged.
