Latest policy comments

WCS Canada Comments - Renewable Electricity Panel Yukon - November 2019
We provide comments to the Renewable Electricity Panel of Yukon Government and Yukon Energy Corp. as they prepare advice on options for providing renewable electricity within Yukon’s future system of energy supply. We recommend that instead of considering large-scale hydroelectric projects, further exploration, careful watershed based planning, and hopefully development of small-scale hydroelectric development. In addition, we recommend that biomass energy be dropped from the government’s priorities, and that the equivalent resources be directed instead towards development of energy from renewables that are more aptly described as “low carbon”.
WCS Canada Comments - Ontario’s Sustainable Bait Management Strategy - November 2019
We provide comments on Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) Sustainable Bait Management Strategy. We support some of the proposed initiatives, including requirement of receipts and documentation for anglers using bait, and the emphasis placed on education and training for industrial and recreational harvesters involved in the bait industry in Ontario. However, there is room for improvement to reduce the ecological risk that the bait industry poses to freshwater systems in Ontario.
WCS Canada Comments - Formal Request for a Regional Assessment with respect to Marten Falls Community Access Road Project and Webequie Supply Road - November 2019
We provide a formal request to conduct a regional assessment for the Ring of Fire area of northern Ontario. This assessment can be used as an effective example of the new Federal Impact Assessment Act.
