The Canadian Environmental Law Association and the Coalition for Responsible Energy Development in New Brunswick held a workshop on February 7, 2022 where the public will had an opportunity to learn about the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s intervention process.

NB Power is asking for a 25-year licence renewal for its Point Lepreau nuclear generating station. Learn
more about your environmental rights and how citizens and groups can submit a written or oral
‘intervention’ at the hearing. Intervening before the Commission is the public’s way of participating in decisions relating to the licensing of Canada’s nuclear facilities

This workshop prepares members of the public to provide written and oral comments to the
Commission for the licence renewal hearing of NB Power’s Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station.

Presenters: Theresa McClenaghan, Kerrie Blaise and Krystal-Anne Roussel

virtually May 11 – 12, 2022 via Zoom. (Part 1, on Jan 26 th involved only presentations by NB Power and
CNSC staff.)
