  • P.O. Box 160, 115 Front Road Port Rowan, Ontario Canada N0E 1M0 BIRDSCANADA.ORG Birds Canada November 27, 2020 Submission to Delta Port 4 Impact Assessment Process Birds Canada recommends that all major projects on the Fraser Delta currently within a federal or provincial impact assessment process be paused until a regional impact assessment for the Fraser Delta can be completed. We therefore recommend this Impact Assessment be paused and Delta Port 4 send a request to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada to utilize the powers under section 91(3) of the Impact Assessment Act to initiate a regional impact assessment for the Fraser Delta. The current Delta Port 4 project is directly adjacent to the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 project (RBT2), and many of the findings that have arisen from that assessment are relevant to the current Delta Port 4 impact assessment. The RBT2 panel found that “Based on the numerous submissions provided ...

  • Issues Identification - Global Container Terminals (GCT) - Deltaport Expansion - Berth Four (DP4) - Project 81010
  • Dear GCT IAAC Project 81010 Assessment Officer and BC EAO (and Lower Mainland MLAs, MPs and ENGOS) Attached is the Fraser Voices letter/submission on the above subject matter. You will note that we feel this IAAC request for issues identification is a close duplication of the many EAs we have been involved in in this particular part of the Fraser River estuary. The bigger issue in this process is the role that should be taken up by the responsible politicians in the Federal and BC Governments - the EA process does not serve justice to any ecosystem approach to protecting our environment and EAs like the one for YVR jet fuel or RBT2 will ensure the continued degradation of the Fraser River Estuary and its living organisms and our quality of life. IAAC cannot and will not address the issues that the Ministers, MPs and MLAs must pursue. Accordingly this is more like a brief to the Ministers as well as an issues identification paper for IAAC. On this ...

  • 1 Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Proposal by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is the Beginning of the End for the Globally Significant Fraser River Estuary. Have we not learned our lessons? Fraser Voices* Brief to CEAA Roberts Bank T2 Impact Assessment Panel. A. Introduction. In that public intervenors have been given a maximum of 20 minutes to present their concerns to the Public Panel we will keep this paper relatively short and not touch on issues related to the engineering or economics of this development proposal. In that we will not be given an opportunity to cross examine the proposal as presented by Port Vancouver we will pose questions that the Panel must seek answers for. The RBT2 proposal and its long public consultation and assessment process have been long and exhausting. In such impact reviews science seems to be the order of the day however the political considerations most often are often aligned with and are most often ...

  • 1 VAPOR BC 6911 Dusnany Place, Richmond, BC, V7C 4N8 Phone: 604 274 7655 www.vaporbc.com <vaporgroup1@gmail.com> VAPOR Presentation to the CEAA Panel on Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Environmental Impact Review. by Otto Langer May 24, 2019. What is an Estuary Worth? Are Globally Significant Populations of Salmon and Bird Life Not Worth Protecting? 1. Introduction: The bigger picture and non-sustainable growth. The above titled questions are not meant to be cute. Considering where the Fraser Estuary now sits in terms of its present industrialization and never ending industrial and population growth, it is our concern that should RBT2 goes ahead the estuary will be reaching a phase much closer to its ecological death. Many Canadians may be smug because this is Canada and we are led to believe we are supposedly a green country. However, many of our natural settings in Canada (rivers, estuaries, ...

  • 0 Fraser Voices Review of the CEAA Panel Review Report on the RBT2 Proposal. Review of the March 27, 2020 CEAA (IAAC) Public Impact Panel Review Report on the Proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project - June 22, 2020 Fraser Voices, other conservation groups, conservation agencies, First Nations and local governments have concluded that the CEAA Public Panel Review report on the proposed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 project does NOT serve as the scientific, economic, public values and common sense foundation for the approval of this project. Recent global events (e.g. COVID 19) must serve as a turning point in much of our thinking related to enjoyment and quality of life, environmental protection and global business as related to our Lower Fraser Valley community. The project is now at a more critical crossroad and should not be approved by our Federal or BC governments. Should more shipping capacity be needed in the ...

  • P ag e1 Impact Assessment Agency of Canada <IAAC.Deltaport.AEIC@canada.ca> Ottawa, Ontario Canada November 26, 2020 Dear Ms. /Mr. IAAC File Officer Re: Issues Identification - Global Container Terminals (GCT) - Deltaport Expansion – Berth Four (DP4) - Project 81010. 1. Introduction: Fraser Voices (FV)* appreciates the opportunity to comment on the above subject matter as part of the IAAC public consultation process. This proposal. in addition to several other large industrial development proposals in the Fraser Estuary in the past decade, has revealed great weaknesses in the CEAA/IAAC and the BC EAO environmental assessment (EA) processes in that they are overly complex, relate poorly to defendable science and are short in openness and transparency in public consultations. We are at a loss as to why we have put years of public consultation effort into the CEAA/IAAC Public Panel on Roberts Bank Terminal 2 (RBT2) EA ...
