Revoke Canadian Premium Sand's Environment Act Licence

We are calling on the Manitoba Minister of Conservation and Climate to revoke Canadian Premium Sand's (CPS) Environment Act Licence for its proposed frac sand mine adjacent to Hollow Water First Nation.

The three revocation conditions as set out in their Licence and issued to CPS by the government of Manitoba on May, 16, 2019 have been met, they are;

1. The CPS Licence expires as of May 16, 2022 and CPS has clearly stated it does not intend to proceed to the production phase with its proposed frac sand mine until sometime in 2022, if at all.

2. CPS has publicly stated it intends to make major alterations to it's existing Environmental Licence by barging 1 million tonnes of frac sand a year from its mine location on the East side of Lake Winnipeg to the West side of Lake Winnipeg and to build a dry processing plant somewhere near Dunnottar, Manitoba which requires the company, by law, to resubmit an Environmental Act Proposal for a new Environment Act Licence.

3. None of the 98 conditions in the Licence issued to CPS have been fulfilled to date and will likely not be met by the time their Licence expires in May of 2022.

We therefore call on the Manitoba Minister of Conservation and Climate to revoke the Licence issued to CPS on May 16, 2019 and that you ask CPS to resubmit a new Environmental Act Proposal for review when and if CPS is ready to proceed with its proposed frac sand mine.
