Environmental Coalition Releases Video of Suffield Wildlife Area Days Before Hearings
Calgary (October 2, 2008) – The high-profile hearing for EnCana’s application for a large shallow gas project in the Suffield National Wildlife Area (NWA) will begin in Calgary on Monday, October 6.
“Most Canadians will never see this unique landscape or the many species that depend on it. We hope these images will alert people across the country to the risk of losing it,” says Sandra Foss, past-president of the Federation of Alberta Naturalists.
At the hearing, the coalition will speak to a variety of concerns about this project. “Our submission covers a broad range of topics, from the absence of a management plan for Suffield, to the economic risks, to the significant environmental impacts of this proposal,” says Cliff Wallis of Alberta Wilderness Association.
Anyone can attend the hearing and anyone can present to the Joint Review Panel, time permitting. The details are as follows:
