Comparing Prosperity Mine Assessments

28 July, 2011

On 20 July 2011, only a week after a recent audit into the post-certification stage of B.C.’s environmental assessment process, the Northwest Institute for Bioregional Research released a report by long-time environmental lawyer, Mark Haddock, and funded through our Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund, comparing the British Columbia and Federal Environmental Assessments for the controversial Prosperity Mine.  By comparing-and-contrasting the results reached on each of 8 environmental impacts which the federal process identified as "significant", Haddock identifies 9 differences between the two environmental assessment processes which may help to explain and account for the two very different outcomes.

In terms of news about Environmental Assessment, it never rains but it pours.
