Manitoba dam

The federal comprehensive study report for the Wuskwatim Generation project, authored by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, was released November 2005. Several organizations and groups took advantage of the 30-day public comment period, which expired December 21, 2005, to submit comments regarding the CSR. Several organizations reiterated a call for a federal review panel for the Wuskwatim projects, citing deficiencies in the CSR, the significant amount of unresolved public concerns, and various other challenges related to environmental effects, and the review process itself.
