The follow statement originated from the January 31, 2013 meeting of the Board of Directors of Sierra Club Canada:
"Sierra Club Canada is an independent body that sets its own priorities and policies.

TransCanada’s plans for its main natural gas line “would affect the ability of Enbridge and other Ontario and Quebec customers to maintain reliable gas service,” she says.... Read more »
Montré du droit par le gouvernement Harper l'an dernier au moment des réformes des lois environnementales, le processus d'évaluation de l'ancienne Loi sur les pêches était en fait très efficace.
C'est ce que conclut une étude, la première du genre, réalisée par une équipe de l'Université de Toronto et publiée par NRC Research Press, une entité indépendante du Conseil national de recherche du Canada depuis 2010.
Jusqu'à la réforme Harper, le ministère fédéral des Pêches et Océans évaluait annuellement des milliers de projets susceptibles de toucher l'habitat du poisson. Entre 2001 et 2011, jusqu'à 13 000 projets ont été évalués chaque année, et au moins 7700 pour l'année la moins occupée.... Read more »
