Minister of the Environment Sterling Belliveau has dismissed the Margaree Environmental Association's (MEA) appeal to stop a Petroworth-owned oil and gas exploration platform in West Lake Ainslie.

The appeal process is a "one-off," in that the decision is final, and there is no higher body to whom an appeal might now be directed.

The MEA is now prepared to seek legal recourse in order to overturn this ruling.
