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: to voice their concern and to call for an EIA on the 2 bridges construction sites.

Please see CBC article below regarding this issue.

  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


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