Most of it, well almost ALL of it, is clearly above this blogger's level of understanding, but something written in plain language jumped out at me.
The Suzuki Foundation states on page 6 of their objection letter in reference to the studies Highlands did on the Pine River that Highlands experts conclude:
"...that there is an extensive area of fish habitat in the area above the proposed license area and below it but, according to the Stantec report, not through it".
So with my limited knowledge and intelligence, this would only make me come to the conclusion that we have a rare, rare type of fish in this area, flying trout. I mean how else would the trout be able to nagivate the Pine River water system since they don't go THROUGH the license area, but are located both above and below it.
Hokey smokes, stop the application!!!
