Milton Logistics Hub Project - Review Panel Invites Comments on Draft Public Hearing Procedures

OTTAWA – January 17, 2018 – The Review Panel conducting the joint process to review the proposed Milton Logistics Hub Project is seeking comments on the draft Public Hearing Procedures. The procedures outline how the public hearing will be organized and how interested parties can participate at the hearing.

At this time, the Review Panel cannot predict the timing of the hearing; however, the Review Panel will provide a minimum of 60-days' notice in advance of the start of the public hearing.

Participants are invited to provide the Review Panel with general comments on the procedures. However, of particular interest are comments regarding the timing of traditional and seasonal activities that should be considered when scheduling the public hearing. The Review Panel would also like to hear about suitable locations where the hearing should be held, including potentially affected Indigenous communities and local communities.

The Review Panel will consider all comments received before issuing the final version of the Public Hearing Procedures. All comments received will be considered public and will be posted on the online public registry. Written comments in either official language should be sent by February 7, 2018 to:

Joseph Ronzio,

The Proposed Project

The Canadian National Railway Company (CN) is proposing the construction and operation of a logistics hub, designed to transfer containers between trucks and railcars. The project would be located in Milton, Ontario on 400-acres of CN-owned land, and would include a railway yard with more than 20 km of track.
