  • George Heyman Minister of Environment Parliament Buildings Victoria, B.C. Fraser Voices 6911 Dunsany Place Richmond, BC. V7C 4N8 March 5, 2020 Dear Hon. Minister Heyman: Re: State of Environmental Protection in the Fraser River Estuary. During the past decade the industrial development pressures are again building momentum in the Lower Fraser River and its estuary. Some terrible precedents were set by previous Federal and BC governments but to our dismay we see little action from present senior governments to re-establish some of the environmental assessment and protection measures that we could count on in the 1970’s to 2010 time period to at least maintain the status quo. A short listing of shortcomings in environmental assessments, high risk projects and inadequate government policies that are exposing the estuary to great risk and losses include: 1. Ottawa elimination of EA and protection legislation in ...

  • History and Outcomes of the Fraser River Estuary Management Program (FREMP) and the Burrard Inlet Environmental Action Plan (BIEAP). FREMP was formed in the 1980s after several years of Fraser River Estuary Study work. FREMP was to overcome the disjointed and inadequate protection of the Fraser River estuary. FREMP was a successful initiative but was terminated by the federal government in 2013. A new FREMP type program is urgently required to protect the estuary and associated ecosystems to reduce industrial / environmental conflict now taking place in the estuary and the Lower Fraser River.

On March 5, 2020 Fraser Voices mailed you a letter concerning the tremendous industrial pressure now facing the Fraser River Estuary, its living resources and our community’s quality of life. We listed a long list of industrial projects that are now posed for development on the banks of the Fraser Estuary. That letter is attached. We had hoped to meet and discuss the issue but COVID has delayed that meeting. Despite constant public pressure for better estuary protection, it appears that government is now solely devoted to assessing and approving almost any project proposed for development in the estuary. Since the elimination of FREMP there is no planning ...

  • Public Safety Canada Federal Authority Advice Record - Tilbury Phase 2 LNG Expansion Project
  • Hello, The  interpretation of the Public Safety Canada, Pacific Regional Office is that we do not have a direct role in the subject areas and assessment for the Tilbury Phase 2 Expansion. The assessment is expected to to be focused at the regulatory and legislative levels, and presumably any emergency preparedness or mitigative activities during project development would be prescribed by regulations to be commented on by the specific regulatory provincial and federal departments. A role that Public Safety could have, should there be a major emergency related to the site or project in the future, would be to facilitate federal and federal/provincial coordination during emergency response. Note that this would be for a major incident exceeding the routine response mechanisms for involved departments. I have attached the link to the Federal Emergency Response Plan (FERP) which describes this ...
