The Government of Alberta has announced that the Tsuut’ina Nation has formally withdrawn its objection to the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir (SR1) project.
In April 1 letters sent to the Natural Resources Conservation Board and the Impact Assessment Agency, the Tsuut’ina Nation stated it has withdrawn its objections to SR1 and will not further participate in the project’s regulatory process.
“The Tsuut’ina Nation is an important partner. We committed to meaningfully consult with impacted communities on the Springbank Reservoir, and the withdrawal of the Nation’s objections demonstrates we are doing just that,” said Ric McIver, Minister of Transportation. “This marks a major milestone in the regulatory review of the Springbank Reservoir and we are pleased to continue to work with our First Nations partners.”
