The New Brunswick Bill of Rights to Protect Children's Health from Environmental Hazards is an initiative of organizations working together through the New Brunswick Children's Environmental Health Collaborative.

Children are
far
more vulnerable than adults to harm from environmental hazards, and childhood exposures can result in health effects throughout their life stages and into adulthood. Although children in Canada and elsewhere in the world already have a right through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child to “the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of
health”, this does not explicitly address protection from harm to their health due to environmental hazards. 

VISION
To develop and promote practical and enforceable laws that will:
  • recognize the particular vulnerabilities of children
  • protect children's health from environmental hazards, and
  • promote healthy indoor and outdoor environments that support children's health and development.                                   
                                      
TAKE ACTION
Children should have the right to special protection from environmental hazards to ensure that they can live and grow in healthy environments. Do you agree?

EIA Needed to Build Bridges: Mount Carleton Park

Friday, 09 September 2016
by Linda Robertson
Attention All New Brunswickers!

There are two bridges being built in Mount Carleton Park.  One of the bridges ( Moose Brook Bridge) is being built in a major moose yard and through a significant wetland.  The other bridge ( Bathurst Lake Thoroughfare), which once was a footbridge, is being built through a wildlife habitat and stream. 

The Department of Environment have given an exemption to the Department of Tourism to build these two new bridges.  They do have a Watercourse Alteration Permit.

The Friends of Mount Carleton Park believe that a full EIA is required. We want the construction to stop and we want the Department of Environment to conduct a full EIA on this construction project.

We are asking everyone to call Minister Serge Rouselle at 453-2690 or send an email at:  serge.rousselle@gnb.ca to voice their concern and to call for an EIA on the 2 bridges construction sites.

Please see CBC article below regarding this issue.

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 8 , 2016  Contact: Mary –  369-1995/mdelav45@gmail.com





STOP SPRAYING OUR FORESTS





  The long delayed Report on Glyphosate from the NB CMOH, has been released, and its bland conclusions are that human health risks can be reduced if label restrictions are properly followed.   This is in startling contrast to the World Health Organization, WHO, that has named it a “probable carcinogen”.   Who to believe  ?  



Several countries , such as France, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands argue for a complete ban on its use in forestry and agriculture.  Closer to home, both Quebec and Vermont have banned herbicide use in their Crown Forests.   This has created hundreds of jobs using man-crews for thinning.



On August 10, You can hear firsthand how glyphosate is affecting our forests, our wildlife - and us.   Please join us.



The evening program includes:



-      a film - THE TAINTED FOREST

-       ROD CUMBERLAND, retired DNR Wildlife Biologist

-       PETER GILBERT, co-organizer, STOP SPRAYING NB campaign





SALMON MUSEUM, DOAKTOWN

WED. August 10, 7 PM  -  doors open 6.30 PM.
