Wood Buffalo National Park Needs Stronger Cumulative Impacts Assessment from Parks Canada

April 13, 2018

AWA asks Parks Canada to strengthen two aspects of its draft environmental assessment of Wood Buffalo National Park:

  • Clearly state that the Outstanding Universal Values of the Peace-Athabasca Delta are suffering from adverse effects of development, and have significantly declined below an acceptable level;
  • Discuss the significant risk of inadequately reclaimed oil sands mine tailings because of technical and financial security shortcomings.

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see.
