Federal government to regulate controversial Alton Gas cavern project

The federal government is stepping in to regulate a company's controversial plan to use water from one of Nova Scotia's major rivers to create huge underground caverns to store natural gas, but a Mi'kmaq leader says Ottawa's move doesn't go far enough. Environment and Climate Change Canada says the proposed regulations for the Alton Gas project will be aimed at managing potential threats to fish, fish habitat and human health.
