CARC Refutes Imperial Criticisms

CARC Refutes Imperial Criticisms

The Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC) is filing information that corrects misguided criticisms aimed at CARC’s work in modeling impacts of the proposed Mackenzie Valley Pipeline project. The new information will be filed with the review panel looking at the Gas Project. An Imperial Oil participant presented the criticism of CARC’s work after CARC representatives had left the review panel hearing in Yellowknife last week.

Beef Up Assessment of Pipeline Impacts

CARC tells Pipeline Developers “Beef Up Assessment of Pipeline Impacts”

The Canadian Arctic Resources Committee is calling on the proponents of the Mackenzie Valley Gas Project to rework their assessment of the impacts of their proposed pipeline. The almost 1,400 kilometre pipeline would stretch from the Arctic Coast to the Alberta border and would be the biggest industrial development the north has ever seen. The project is in the late stages of a review by the Joint Review Panel that will make recommendations to the federal government on if or how the project should go ahead.

Taking off the development blindfold

Taking off the development blindfold

Much of the history of development in northern Canada is a history of blindfolded stumbling in the dark, in terms of forecasting the impacts of development. Many of the impacts were only realized after the development had occurred. For years, signs along the lakeshore in Yellowknife warned of the dangers of swimming in the arsenic-polluted water. In recent years, the federal government has spent many millions of dollars cleaning up contaminated sites left by unplanned development.

Nunavut Body Must Consider Other Interests In Bathurst Road And Port Review

NUNAVUT BODY MUST CONSIDER OTHER INTERESTS IN BATHURST ROAD AND PORT REVIEW

The Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC) is disappointed that the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development has chosen to leave a review of a major industrial development on the Arctic Coast to a local review body. Minister Andy Mitchell decided earlier this week that the Bathurst Inlet Port and Road project will be reviewed by the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB), rather than by a wider-ranging federal review panel.

CARRYING CAPACITY AND THRESHOLDS: THEORY AND PRACTICE IN ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

CARC is releasing an independent study on the theory and practice of using carrying capacity and thresholds in environmental management. This report by the Macleod Institute is part of CARC's Cumulative Effects Program. The study reviews the literature and case studies while laying out an approach for the NWT.
