Alberta taxpayers need to know full cost of new government protocol to prop up game farming

Alberta Wilderness Association

September 16, 2004

The Alberta Government has released a new game farming protocol that allows imports of deer and elk into the province in a bid to "increase marketing opportunities." AWA is astounded by this move for three main reasons: the threats to wildlife, the growing public cost, and the lack of markets. AWA has long maintained that the threats of disease and commercialization to wild populations make game farming untenable under any protocol, and urges the Alberta government to maintain the ban on commercial imports of
cervids. Read more »

Cheviot developers ask for delay in Appeal Board hearing: Conservation groups counter-offer

Media Release

For Immediate Release, Sept.7, 2004

Cardinal River Coals Ltd (CRC) and its parent companies Teck Cominco and Fording Canadian Coal Trust have formally asked for a stay to delay the Alberta Environmental Appeals Board hearing of Ben Gadd's appeal of the haulroad portion of the Cheviot coal mine. Gadd and his lawyer, Jennifer Klimek, have sent a submission to the Board arguing the hearing should proceed as scheduled for Sept. 27-28 in Hinton, Alberta. One of the company's reasons for requesting the stay is that, "the hearing may be used by Mr. Gadd and others to obtain information from CRC that will be detrimental to CRC?s position in respect of the Federal Court Application," referring to the case launched by the conservation coalition.

FOR Makes Submission to the NAFTA Commission on Environmental Cooperation

The Friends of the Oldman River

Media Release

September 7, 2004

Today the Friends of the Oldman River (FOR) are making another Article 14 Submission to the Commission on Environmental Cooperation (CEC) which was established as part of the North American Agreement on Free Trade (NAFTA).

FOR's submission alleges that the Government of Canada is failing to enforce and comply with the Fisheries Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA) by issuing letters of advice. DFO uses letters of advice to tell proponents what they can do to avoid or mitigate damage to fish habitat. The Fisheries Act makes no provision for issuing letters of advice. And the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is not doing environmental assessments as required by CEAA before issuing the letters of advice. Read more »
