Why we need to defend Bill C69 against industry attacks
This webinar took place - Thursday Feb 21st, 2019 1:00pm - 2:30pm ET
Bill C69, the Federal Bill attempting to reform some of Canada’s most important environmental laws (pertaining to impact assessment, energy regulation, and navigable waters) is under attack.
As the Bill comes before the Senate, the oil and gas lobby has ramped up its campaign in an attempt to kill the Bill, leaving us with major gaps in environmental protections. Join West Coast Environmental Law and the Canadian Freshwater Alliance as we walk through what’s in Bill C69, what we need to defend in the Senate and where we’d like to see additional protections. Learn about the national Senate tour and how you can play a role in sending a clear message to that Canada is ready for 21st century environmental legislation.
Action Items from webinar:
- Draw from what you’ve heard today and make a submission to: [email protected]
- In your submission, ask to appear before committee. That way, if the senate does travel, and if they come to a community near you, you are on record as a potential witness.
