Environment Canada officers raided a natural gas facility in Saint John on Thursday looking for evidence that could help them investigate a major bird kill last month.
Officers arrived at Canaport LNG just before 9 a.m. on Thursday.
Inside the facility’s security building, men in Environment Canada uniforms monitored people coming and going.
"Environment Canada wildlife officers are investigating a kill of migratory birds that occurred early in September. Today the officers are executing a search warrant trying to gather additional evidence as part of that investigation," said Craig Smith, speaking for Environment Canada.
