Petroworth Clarification

“In November 2010 the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs received a formal request from the Provincial Department of Energy for consultation pursuant to the Mi’kmaq-Nova Scotia-Canada Consultation Terms of Reference, ratified August 31st, 2010.  The request initiated consultation on Petroworth’s authority to drill an exploration well.  In response, a number of concerns with the proposed activity were identified and communicated directly to the Dept of Energy.  While these concerns have been acknowledged by the Crown, more information is required from the company. 
KMKNO was asked to coordinate the community presentation from Petroworth upon the request from the company itself, the Province and also the concerned community members. 
As there are many concerns and unanswered questions. Petroworth is required to address those issues presented by the Mi’kmaq communities. There are serious concerns regarding this project and a community presentation is a piece of the ongoing consultation process”
