  • LAKE COWICHAN FIRST NATION 313B Deer Road PO Box 159 Lake Cowichan, BC V0R 2G0 (250) 749-3301 1.1 Climate Change Issues, Impacts and Consultation: (a) Consultation The Crown’s consultation obligation to a First Nation, as prescribed by the courts, is a process and an iterative process. That process is supposed to be discussed between the parties first and laid out between the parties. The Crown’s response does not indicate a willingness on the Crown’s part to establish a process, much less an iterative one. These failures will not address the Crown’s expressed desire to restore faith in the process, and in fact will result in a failure of the Crown in its consultation obligations to the Lake Cowichan First Nation. Further, the intent of the Crown’s consultation has been limited to the ‘upstream’ effects and will not review the downstream effects. The courts have further identified that although the Crown may layout the parameters of the ...

Experts in scientific and economic fields have proved the dangers of LNG to the environment, including the fact that, all things considered, including methane emissions and fracking consequences, LNG is possibly the dirtiest fuel available and will do colossal harm to the world's fragile environment. SIGTTO, the international standard setting association, states that the worst case scenario should always rule when siting a facility. It further states that no facility should be sited on a narrow waterway with population centres along the shoreline and busy commercial and recreational traffic. Howe Sound is an obvious example of such a dangerous ...

  • From: Eric Andersen [<email address removed>] Sent: March 2, 2016 2:41 AM To: Woodfibre LNG / GNL Woodfibre (CEAA/ACEE) Subject: Woodfibre LNG Comment - Eric Andersen The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency report, Woodfibre LNG Project - Review of Related Upstream Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Estimates, is the first analysis of upstream greenhouse gases associated with industrial projects under federal environmental review. The report illustrates many challenges in accurately estimating GHG emissions from upstream stages of the supply chain. The actual carbon intensity of the gas that Woodfibre will use itself could vary widely, depending on the sources of gas. Apparently, it may be the case that the Woodfibre facility will not itself result in establishment of new gas field production facilities, due to its small size and status as ‘market buyer’ of feedstock. We are in an early stage in conducting analysis of greenhouse gas emissions – both upstream ...

Howe Sound would not be a legal width waterway, in the United States or Internationally for LNG Supertanker Shipping. LNG Supertankers are a significant safety issue. Will the CEAA process consider Sustainability, which includes the environment, the economy, and both social and cultural issues? I am a former 5 term Mayor of Lions Bay and have been an elected official for 17 years in Howe Sound. I am the envisioner and was the Charter Chair of the Howe Sound Community Forum which developed the 3 page document, attached ...

Some of my reasons for opposition are the following; • The environmental costs of the project both locally and globally will outweigh any benefits.Damage to the local herring population,glass sponge reefs and sports fishing has not been addressed for this project. Health impacts and costs from release,of nitrous oxide and sulphur dioxide has not been addressed. • Woodfibre LNG will emit about 1 million tonnes of GHGs per year - increasing Canada’s overall GHG footprint at a time when GHG reduction is a pivotal commitment for Canada both at home and to meet global ...

I oppose the proposed Woodfibre LNG project Please make Howe Sound a protected park for the future generations to enjoy. I oppose the Woodfibre LNG Project in Howe Sound due to increased GHG emissions that will create a significant adverse environmental impact. Reasons for opposition include: • Canada’s COP21 commitment to reduce GHG emissions will be compromised should the Woodfibre LNG project be approved. It must not be approved. • Woodfibre LNG will emit about 1 million tonnes of GHGs per year - increasing Canada’s overall GHG footprint at a time when GHG reduction is a pivotal commitment for Canada. • The Report fails to consider the negative environmental impact of fugitive methane gases in its scope. ...

  • From: Karen Elliott and Sean Lumb <email address removed> Sent: March 2, 2016 2:25 AM To: Woodfibre LNG / GNL Woodfibre (CEAA/ACEE) Subject: Feedback on Woodfibre LNG project in Squamish Dear Minister McKenna, First off, thank you for implementing a policy to look at upstream GHG emissions for projects like Woodfibre LNG (WLNG). This is a step in the right direction. That being said, as residents of Squamish, BC, we are very concerned that WLNG still has the potential to become a reality in Howe Sound. After the leadership Canada demonstrated at COP21 to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C, it is more critical than ever to stop investing in additional fossil fuel infrastructure and promoting the expansion of an LNG industry for export. Our town is at risk of ending up with stranded assets because senior levels of government proceed with approving an industry that has a limited lifetime, given the demands our nation is confronting to reduce its GHG emissions. Our ...
