Justification

Nous considérons cette promesse comme étant toujours en suspens. Il ne semble pas y avoir de lois qui aient été passées en 2020, 2021, 2022 ou encore en 2023 sur les dépôts illégaux de déchets au Nouveau-Brunswick ni sur un éventuel renversement du fardeau de preuve.

We view this promise as still pending. There do not appear to be any laws passed in 2020, 2021, 2022 or even 2023 on illegal waste dumping in New Brunswick or on a possible reversal of the burden of proof.
