Quoted from the article (online here):

B.C.'s Environmental Assessment Office has already approved the controversial Prosperity mine once, but a review of proposed design changes won't necessarily result in another positive ruling, says a top government official. ...

In a toughly worded letter to Premier Christy Clark last May, Taseko president and chief executive officer Russell Hallbauer threatened to seek damages in court from the province if the EAO didn't promptly proceed with "timely completion" of its application. ...

Several weeks after Ms. Clark got that letter, the EAO wrote back to Mr. Hallbauer to say it "is prepared to proceed with the amendment process." ...

The letter was released Tuesday by MLA Vicki Huntington, who obtained it through freedom of information.
