“The project as it was proposed would result in the destruction of Fish Lake and the destruction as well of a complex and highly productive ecosystem that included ... dozens of connecting streams, wetlands and aquatic life,” Environment Minister Jim Prentice said Tuesday.

“There was a significant risk that this habitat could not be successfully reproduced through manmade substitutes.”
