128.15. The Société may make an order on ascertaining that an activity that may result in serious or irreparable damage to a wildlife habitat
(1) has begun or is about to begin without authorization;
(2) violates the conditions attached to the authorization;
(3) violates the standards or conditions of management prescribed by regulation.
The order shall require the person concerned to suspend the activity until he obtains the required authorization or, as the case may be, to observe the conditions attached to the authorization or the standards or conditions of management prescribed by regulation.
The order must give the reasons on which it is based; it comes into force on the date of its notification.
A person to whom such an order is notified without prior notice because, in the opinion of the Société, urgent action is required or there is a danger of irreparable damage being caused, may, within the time specified in the order, present observations so that the order may be reviewed by the Société.
Where a person to whom an order is made refuses or neglects to follow it, the Société may, in addition to any other remedy, apply to the Superior Court for an injunction ordering the person to comply with the order.
The Minister may, in the cases referred to in sections 128.8 and 128.9, make an order under the first paragraph in accordance with the conditions set out in this section.
