Covering nearly 45,000 square kilometres in northeastern Alberta and the Northwest Territories, Wood Buffalo National Park has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

But Indigenous and environmental groups claim that Canada not yet followed through on 17 recommendations from a UNESCO committee to protect this natural wonderland.

If Canadians are going to have to pay the $10 to $15-billion cost of expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline, it's important they aren't bound by side deals that are not in the public interest made by the project's former corporate owner.

Re: Withdrawal from Site C Injunction

Hildegard Bechler

Hydro’s incentive program that pays home solar producers for electricity beyond what they need themselves is the cutting edge of climate collapse amelioration.  These rebates have been available for 14 years; Hydro has 1,330 customers; 95% of them installed solar.  Hydro will apply to the BC Utilities Commission to end the part of the program that allows production beyond the owner’s need.  It will continue for those already on that track, but would be unavailable for new applicants.

When lawyers for B.C. Premier John Horgan’s government return to the courtroom this summer in the continuing battle over the Site C dam, their co-defendants will be notably absent.

The federal government, which approved the $10.7-billion project in 2014, has served notice to the courts that it will not oppose an injunction that aims to halt construction.
