Jamie Simpson, the lawyer who took the case to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court on behalf of environmentalist Bob Bancroft and the Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association, said he was unaware of the company’s decision when contacted by CBC News Tuesday.
He said what matters now is how the provincial PC government will respond to the news and whether it will try to find a new buyer to develop the land.
In a statement, Natural Resources and Renewables Minister Tory Rushton said this was a business decision.
“Crown lands belong to all Nova Scotians and we as a government were prepared to consult the public on the future of the area,” Rushton said.
