Dear Chief Thomas and Councillors,

Re:Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project – seeking comment on draft review panel terms of reference.

The proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project (the Project) is currently undergoing an environmental assessment by Review Panel. The Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, federal Minister of the Environment (the Minister) issued the Guidelines for the Preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement for the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project on January 7, 2014. The proponent, Port Metro Vancouver, is currently developing an Environmental Impact Statement, which they will submit to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) prior to the appointment of Review Panel members.

The Agency is seeking your comments on the attached draft terms of reference. The purpose of the terms of reference is to establish the composition and mandate of the Review Panel. The terms of reference also sets out the process that the Review Panel will follow. The final terms of reference will be issued by the Minister after comments, including comments from Aboriginal groups, the public and government agencies, have been taken into account.

Comments on the draft terms of reference are due into the Agency by September 22, 2014. Please send your comments to RobertsBank@ceaa-acee.gc.ca or by mail to Analise Saely, Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, PO Box 10114, 701 West Georgia Street, Suite 410, Vancouver, British Columbia, V7Y 1C6. Please be advised that your comments will be posted on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry site for the Project.

If you have any questions about the comment period or the draft terms of reference, you can contact me directly at 604-666-9162 or by email at Analise.Saely@ceaa-acee.gc.ca.

Sincerely,

Analise Saely
