shale

Over 30 citizen-based groups from across the province are working in their communities on the issue of shale gas. Through the NBEN, the groups have an opportunity to network with each other and to share their activities, ideas and information on shale gas issues. The NBEN brings groups together to work on shale gas issues through its caucus approach.

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.
