  • Assessment: Bay du Nord Development Project will put Canada at serious risk of civil and possibly criminal litigation
  • In light of the most recent report from the IPCC -- which demonstrates that climate breakdown is happening faster than expected and that the window to take action is rapidly closing -- the government of Canada has no choice but to immediately stop this project.  Any decision to move forward in light of these findings -- which clearly demonstrate the economic, social and health risks that climate change poses to humanity -- would make any decision-makers that support this project to move forward subject to civil and perhaps criminal litigation.  I've attached the IPCC's summary for policy-makers, which I strongly recommend decision-makers review in detail.. To be specific, the economic benefits that this project to Newfoundlanders and Canadians will be vastly overshadowed by the economic, social and health costs that will be incurred due to increased climate disasters.  Canadians, like all citizens of the world, will be forced to pay the steep economic ...

  • UW EARS - Comment on the Bay du Nord Development Project
  • Introduction The University of Waterloo’s Environmental Assessment Review Society has completed its evaluation of the Bay du Nord Offshore Oil and Gas Project (#80154) proposed by Equinor. It is our opinion that the project proposal should be rejected by the Minister. We recommend that investments in the proposed project be allocated into areas which can proactively address the environmental and economic concerns of the province such as renewable energy development and pandemic recovery.    Biophysical Impacts  The Environmental Impact Statement lists direct or indirect contamination through the food chain as a potential unplanned project impact. However, it does not adequately address the threat nor the potential for species at risk vulnerable to dramatic environmental changes such as the proposed effects of this project and implications to the greater Atlantic food web. As species counts may ...
