We prepared and submitted our letter of appeal in opposition of the approved permit application for a gravel pit in the Sturgeon Hole Reach Environmentally Significant Area of Parkland County (p.198). The lake sturgeon is an amazing fish and this project is adjacent to an important North Saskatchewan River sturgeon spawning area (hence the name “Sturgeon Hole Reach”). The appeal board hearing was postponed from Dec. 2 to Jan. 19/2015. We will be presenting our appeal reasons then.
We were part of a group of health and environmental organisations signing on to a public statement in support of prohibiting the use of triclosan (a harmful anti-microbial agent) in Canada. This is for your health, your kids’ health, and the health of those with whom we share this great country.
We were part of a group of environmental organisations who submitted an “Obed one year later” media release calling for action and enforcement by our governments on the largest coal slurry spill in Canadian history.
