Joint Review Panel for Bruce Power New Nuclear Power Plant Project Requests Additional Information on EIS and Application for Licence to Prepare a Site



    OTTAWA, Feb. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - The Joint Review Panel (the Panel) for the
Bruce Power New Nuclear Power Plant Project today requested, from the
proponent, Bruce Power Inc., additional information concerning the
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and the Application for a Licence to
Prepare a Site.
    The six-month public comment period that was initially anticipated to end
in early May 2009, will be extended as a result of this request by the Panel.
A new timeline that specifies the revised end of the public comment period
will be issued according to the amount of time required for the proponent to
respond to the Panel's request for additional information. Consequently,
Canadians will have a longer time period to review and comment on the
proponent's EIS and the Application for a Licence to Prepare a Site.
    Any additional information submitted by the proponent will be made
available on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry, reference number
07-05-25738. The new deadline for the public comment period will be announced
when the requested information is received by the Panel. The Canadian Nuclear
Safety Commission will continue to update the Bruce Power Project milestones
on its Web site.
    The public may continue to submit written comments on the EIS and the
Application for a Licence to Prepare a Site to the address below. Please
forward written comments by mail, e-mail or fax to the attention of:
