The Sunshine Coast Regional District unanimously voted against Burnco's request for rezoning McNab Valley.

The Burnco Aggregate Mine in McNab Valley receives approval from Fisheries and Oceans but Burnco has one more hurdle.

It was a sad day for many when it was announced March 20th, 2018 the BC Environmental Assessment Office had issued an environmental certificate for the Burnco Aggregate Project.

Comments on the Federal Assessment Report of the Burnco Aggregte Mine are open until January 26th, 2018.

The Assessment Offices are releasing their Final reports for public comment starting October 27th. Final comments will form part of the decision making process by the Federal and Provincial Ministers.

The BC Environmental Assessment Office has granted BURNCO Rock Products a time-out in order for the company to respond to all the comments. The 180 review period was to end January 28, 2017.

Over 300 people attended the three public consultation open houses, over 600 comments were submitted, 96% against or expressing strong concerns.

Save Howe Sound!

A large scale gravel mine continues to press forward at McNab Creek, smack in the middle of the Sound. The PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD is now on until October 3rd, 2016. Help make sure decision makers understand the serious issues at stake.

45 Day public consultation begins August 15th for the proposed Burnco Aggregate Mine that will ruin beautiful McNab Valley and this part of Howe Sound.

At a time when climate change threatens our future and so much value is attributed to these estuaries, it begs the question of planners and our leaders why they would mess with our estuaries.
