In May 2005, concerned New Brunswickers started talking about ways to reduce children’s exposure to chemicals pollutants in air, water and soil. After several meetings and discussions, the Children’s Environmental Health Collaborative was created.

Today, this network includes over 300 people from nearly 100 agencies and organizations, representing government, non-government, academia, professional associations from the health, environment and education sectors. These concerned New Brunswickers want to make sure that children have healthy environments in which to live, learn and play. With expertise and experience available from many different agencies, participants build on each other’s strengths and work together toward the common goal of a healthy world for our children.

The work of the NB Children’s Environmental Health Collaborative is supported by the CEH Strategy for Action and is guided by six goals:

Goal 1: Develop and maintain a collaborative effort of stakeholders in New Brunswick
Goal 2: Develop and advance educational opportunities for families and professionals
Goal 3: Encourage and promote research
Goal 4: Improve policy and legislation related to children’s environmental health
Goal 5: Reduce exposure to specific contaminants through strategic directions
Goal 6: Promote and foster children’s interaction with nature

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.
