Dear Friends, Vol­un­teers and Sup­port­ers, As pre­vi­ously re­ported, a Fed­eral Court hear­ing was held on Fe­bru­ary 25 and 26, 2015, re­gard­ing the ARSBC’s Dis­posal at Sea Per­mit is­sued by

En­vi­ron­ment Canada in Oc­to­ber 2014. The Dis­posal at Sea Per­mit au­tho­rizes the ARSBC to sink the An­napo­lis at Halkett Bay, Gam­bier Is­land. Some res­i­dents of Halkett Bay filed an ap­pli­ca­tion ask­ing the Court to over­turn the Dis­posal at Sea Per­mit. We are pleased to an­nounce that the Fed­eral Court has up­held the Dis­posal at Sea Per­mit and lifted the Court in­junc­tion that was pre­vi­ously put in place. We an­tic­i­pate that the Court de­ci­sion will be avail­able from the Fed­eral Court of Canada’s web­site shortly. We are thrilled with the out­come and we look for­ward to com­plet­ing the pro­ject. We will keep you up­dated on the sta­tus of the pro­ject.
