The Ministry of Environment for Quebec says the public should be rest assured the fish deaths are not the result of a chemical spill.

A spokesperson for the ministry tells CTV News there is an open investigation into the ‘operations’ of the Brookfield Hydro Plant located on the Lièvre River.

“The most plausible cause of fish deaths would be related to the Brookfield Hydroelectric Plant Operations,” said ministry spokesperson and Outaouais Environmental Control Centre regional director Alexandre Oullet.
