Improvements to Environmental Assessment Act Received Nov. 17, 2016Submitted By: Diana Hardacker December 28, 2016
Dear Panel Members,
I am pleased to be permitted to comment on our Environmental Assessment Act. It sure needs positive changes.
I would like to see the act provide for the following:
Unrestricted public participation
Decisions based on the long term health of whole ecosystems and communities Easily accessed information for all Continual testing to make sure Canada meets its Paris climate goals A framework for addressing the cumulative effects of industrial and other activities in a region Abide by scientific evidence and studies, and the input of participants Rules and criteria to encourage transparency, accountability and credibility, and to avoid politicized decisions
Thank you for the opportunity to speak. I look forward to participating in a much improved environmental assessment system.
