Proposed Boundaries – Nova Scotia

If You Intend to Make a Representation to the Commission

Interested parties will have the opportunity to make representations to the Commission at advertised public hearings now scheduled at the times and places set out herein under the heading Notice of Sittings. The Commission is precluded by the Act from hearing any party desiring to make a representation who has not given notice in accordance with subsection 19(5) of the Act, which reads as follows:

No representation shall be heard by a commission at any sittings held by it for the hearing of representations from interested persons unless notice in writing is given to the secretary of the commission within 23 days after the date of the publication of the last advertisement under subsection (2), stating the name and address of the person who seeks to make the representation and indicating concisely the nature of the representation and of the interest of the person.

However, the Commission has the power to waive the normal notice requirement for representation at a public hearing if the Commission is satisfied it is in the public interest (see subsection 19(6) of the Act). Notices should be received no later than August 27, 2012, and should be addressed to:
