  • 1 MLi3 Inc. Commentary on Marten Falls Community Access Road Draft EIA Guidelines 1. Overview The draft Guidelines are a good attempt to build a defensible form of EIA guidance to the proponent. They are very comprehensive. Notwithstanding the title, however, these “Tailored Guidelines” need substantial ‘tailoring’ to help the proponent create a clear, practical and defensible scope of assessment for the project. The draft Guidelines reflect a very significant effort to display consideration of Indigenous culture, value systems and sensitivities. That said, the guidance’s reliance on listing of subject matters deserving assessment attention is so discretized as to lose sight of many of the holistic, synoptic value systems that Indigenous communities repeatedly say they want applied in assessments. Further, they ignore other factors affecting assessment processes, especially technological innovation, uncertainty about best practices in planning for community ...
