I gave two in-person presentations to the Expert Panel Review of Environmental Asssessment Processes during their public consultations in Nanaimo, BC. Both presentations focused on the role of science in environmental impact assessment, including current weaknesses and numerous recommendations to strengthen EA-related law, policy, and practice.
Please write to your Member of Parliament - especially Cabinet Ministers and the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development - and Senators to ask them to support stronger environment-related laws in Canada.
More to come about science in environmental assessment... We have to #getEAright!
