The Frontier mine has gone through nearly a decade of regulatory review and a decision by the Liberals would have marked the final stage in the long approval process Teck Resources has officially withdrawn its application to build the $20-billion Frontier oilsands mine, just days before Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was expected to issue a ruling on the contentious project. “We are disappointed to have arrived at this point,” Don Lindsay, CEO of the company, said in a letter to Trudeau published late Sunday. “Teck put forward a socially and environmentally responsible project that was industry leading and had the potential to create significant economic benefit for Canadians.” One person who spoke to the National Post said the decision by Vancouver-based Teck was largely due to ongoing political turmoil in Canada.
