WCS Canada Comments - Yukon's Mineral Development Strategy - August 2020
We provide recommendations with regards to Yukon's Mineral Development Strategy to be considered by an independent panel appointed by governments in Yukon.
WCS Canada Comments - Trout Lake Forest Long Term Management Direction - January 2020
We provide comments to Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry on their proposed long-term Forest Management Plan for the Trout Lake Forest. We highlight: 1) the inadequacy of the plan to address the potential effects of new road development on boreal wildlife; 2) the inadequacy of the plan to measure and address cumulative effects as they pertain to caribou and wolverine; 3) the lack of a management plan for the “Z-Blocks”; and 4) insufficient consideration of wolverine habitat.
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 - Recommended Whitehorse and Southern Lakes Forest Resources Management Plan - October 2019
We provide comments on the Yukon government's 2019 Forest Resources Management Plan for the Whitehorse and Southern Lakes area.
WCS Canada Comments - Marten Falls Community Access Road Project Assessment - August 2019
We are providing comments on the proposal by the Marten Falls First Nation to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency who are determining whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the designated project. We recommend that a federal assessment must be undertaken for this project, and that the federal Environmental Assessment Agency should use the Ring of Fire to complete a pilot regional assessment under the new Impact Assessment Act.
