It’s time to fix B.C.’s environmental laws

From the Mount Polley mine disaster to Kinder Morgan’s illegal anti-spawning fences, weak environmental oversight has made B.C. the Wild West of resource extraction. It’s time to update our laws.

For years B.C. rubber-stamped pipelines, mines, fracking and toxic waste sites with little regard for local communities. But things are shifting. Our new government is proposing a major overhaul to the way we conduct environmental reviews. Big changes on the table include:

  • Ensuring more projects are actually reviewed
  • Collaborating with First Nations to lead joint assessments
  • More input from citizens and independent scientists
  • Rejection of projects that would blow B.C.’s climate targets
  • Rejection of projects that fail to secure Indigenous consent

The government is accepting public comments until July 30. They need to hear from you. What else do you want to see in B.C.’s project reviews? Learn more.
