Add your comments to the BC Government’s Public Feedback on Environmental Assessment
The BC Government wants to hear from YOU!
To its credit, the new government says it wants to do things differently.
After conferring with Indigenous leaders, citizen groups, industry executives and an expert panel, they say they want to restore public confidence in project reviews, advance reconciliation with First Nations and make real strides on climate. Residents want economic development without having to sacrifice their ability to hunt, fish, breathe fresh air and drink clean water.
That all sounds great, but without serious support from the public, any actual changes to the legislation will be gutted by lobbyists. That’s their job.
We need everyday people to keep our lawmakers on track.
Before July 30th!
Right now British Columbians have a rare chance to tell the government what we want!
