I feel my decision to support or oppose the mine should be respectful of the diversity of opinions in Kamloops. I think I need to be very thoughtful, have all the information available, and be able to fully explain my decision making process. Thus, I think its important to see the full proposal for the mine, which is scheduled to be submitted in early 2015, and to base my decision on this full proposal. At that time, I am committed to making a definite statement as to whether I support or don’t support the proposal. I have set a very high bar for my support, as I think the community would expect. I have confirmed with the BC Environmental Assessment Office that council comments will still have impact (arguable in fact more impact) after the full proposal is submitted.
