Environment Minister Albert Jacob claims that "the chief justice’s finding was that the EPA did, in fact, go by its own policies, however the issue that occurred was that the EPA had not referenced those policy documents throughout its assessment". Not true. Chief Justice Martin actually said: "No attempt is made in the Assessment Report to reconcile the approach taken with the policy enunciated in the three published policy statements to which I have referred." This is a very specific reference to the substance of the policies NOT the policy documents.
