  • Black Out Speak Out: why silence is not an option | CPAWS Northwest Territories
    provisions in the Fisheries Act replaces the entire Environmental Assessment Act with a much weaker version excludes interested Canadians from public consultation processes and centralizes more decision making at the Cabinet level As a result our land and water and the ecosystems and wildlife they sustain will be vulnerable to fast tracked industrial development projects rather than a thoughtful process that enables science based methods to determine impacts to nature prior to approval Environmental groups like CPAWS have always participated in public consultations about the impacts of development projects on our natural environment and encouraged our supporters to do the same Whether it s on the impact of a mining project on a national park downstream or a dam on a river system these processes ensure that citizens and groups like CPAWS can bring our knowledge and perspectives to bear on decision making and provide science based analysis of industrial projects This isn t political activity it s bringing our expertise and knowledge to bear on decision making And whether you agree with environmental groups or not they and their members should have the right to participate in these discussions I may not always agree with my counterparts in other environmental organizations but I will defend their right to share their views I may not always agree with my counterparts in the industrial sector but I will also defend their right to be heard as well Healthy and informed debate is critically important to sound public decision making and is a core Canadian value Bill C 38 is an unprecedented piece of legislation that combines a traditional budget bill with a rewriting of almost every federal environmental law Silence is not an option By Éric Hébert Daly CPAWS National Executive Director Click here for more information about Black Out Speak

  • CPAWS-NWT NewsNorth editorial on Parks Canada cuts: Monday May 14 | CPAWS Northwest Territories
    National Historic Sites and the people who manage them represent a significant part of the local economy Most of these civil servants have worked in the North for many years up to several decades and they and their families are vital parts of their communities Many are Aboriginal northerners for whom parks are a component of their traditional territory CPAWS NWT has first hand experience interacting with many of these individuals and we know them to be unmatched in their dedication both to their jobs and the communities in which they live making important contributions through their work family and volunteer endeavors The impact of these staffing cuts will be devastating The capacity of Parks Canada to protect our northern National Parks establish new parks conserve areas of natural and cultural value to Northerners and Canadians educate our children and make management decisions informed by sound science has been greatly reduced Parks are not storefronts only requiring someone to open and close the doors to visitors Parks are parts of the world that we have chosen to protect because of their natural and cultural values They require care to ensure these values are maintained over time This care is provided by park managers educators interpreters scientists traditional knowledge holders wardens and others based on a wide range of research monitoring and reporting activities National Parks are natural areas that we have entrusted to the federal government to protect for the benefit education and enjoyment of current and future generations Decimating the ability of the department with the mandate to fulfill that role means the federal government has reneged on that trust CPAWS NWT will be providing more specific comments on the implications of Parks Canada s staffing cuts as new details emerge We will also make every effort to ensure

    wetlands through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy PAS Having worked with communities through the PAS process CPAWS NWT is familiar with the extensive effort that goes into advancing an area towards protection It takes a true commitment from a community such as Fort Good Hope to keep a project such as this on track In the January 20th article Sahtu MLA Norman Yakeleya expressed his support for establishing the Ramparts National Wildlife Area NWA and mentioned the significant compromise that has been made by the community to revise the study area boundary to 67 of the original size The ecological cultural non renewable resource renewable resource and socioeconomic assessments required by the PAS process support that the revised boundary would provide protection for ecological values wetlands fish fur bearing animals and species at risk such as boreal and mountain woodland caribou while leaving areas of high mineral and oil and gas potential on the outside of the boundary CPAWS NWT respects that communities have to make critical decisions and compromises when considering how land and resources should be managed for future generations In this case there have been compromises made between development potential and protecting cultural and ecological values We believe that protecting the recommended boundary as a National Wildlife Area will be a good outcome for the region and urge the territorial and federal governments to support the efforts of the Yamoga Land Corp and community of Fort Good hope to protect the Ramparts as a National Wildlife Area Contact Kris Brekke CPAWS NWT Executive Director at 867 873 9893 or kris cpaws org Subscribe to news updates via RSS Events Looking for something to do Check our events section Get social Connect with CPAWS on the following sites Like CPAWS on Facebook What we do Boreal Caribou Love
