Cheviot developers ask for delay in Appeal Board hearing: Conservation groups counter-offer

Media Release

For Immediate Release, Sept.7, 2004

Cardinal River Coals Ltd (CRC) and its parent companies Teck Cominco and Fording Canadian Coal Trust have formally asked for a stay to delay the Alberta Environmental Appeals Board hearing of Ben Gadd's appeal of the haulroad portion of the Cheviot coal mine. Gadd and his lawyer, Jennifer Klimek, have sent a submission to the Board arguing the hearing should proceed as scheduled for Sept. 27-28 in Hinton, Alberta. One of the company's reasons for requesting the stay is that, "the hearing may be used by Mr. Gadd and others to obtain information from CRC that will be detrimental to CRC?s position in respect of the Federal Court Application," referring to the case launched by the conservation coalition.

FOR Makes Submission to the NAFTA Commission on Environmental Cooperation

The Friends of the Oldman River

Media Release

September 7, 2004

Today the Friends of the Oldman River (FOR) are making another Article 14 Submission to the Commission on Environmental Cooperation (CEC) which was established as part of the North American Agreement on Free Trade (NAFTA).

FOR's submission alleges that the Government of Canada is failing to enforce and comply with the Fisheries Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA) by issuing letters of advice. DFO uses letters of advice to tell proponents what they can do to avoid or mitigate damage to fish habitat. The Fisheries Act makes no provision for issuing letters of advice. And the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is not doing environmental assessments as required by CEAA before issuing the letters of advice.

Action Alert: Hydrogen Sulphide Emergency Response Planning levels

From: Martha Kostuch

Apparently Alberta Health has recommended to the EUB that the H2S (hydrogen sulphide) level for modelling Emergency Response Planning Zones (EPZs) be changed to 100 ppm for 30 minutes from the current level which is 100 ppm for 3 minutes. I believe Alberta Health's recommendation is scientifically questionable and is not in the public interest.

Apparently Albera Health has also told the EUB that the EUB must accept Alberta Health's recommendation. Read more about Action Alert: Hydrogen Sulphide Emergency Response Planning levels
