The adverse effects on nearly 1 million migratory birds that use the four major flyways that overlap this area is unacceptable. This project will introduce nearly 5,000 hectares of tailings ponds that have indirect and direct lethal impacts on migrating birds. Tecks conditions proposed are not effective at mitigating lethal impacts of tailings ponds, and will not address the long-term—and often irreversible—loss of wetlands and old-growth forest habitat. This type of intense industrial development should not occur, especially this close to  national park and knowing that oil is become an antiquated resource.
