Cumulative environmental defects

Cumulative environmental defects


The Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development released a report yesterday covering the federal government’s climate change plans and cumulative environmental effects assessment of oil sands projects. The Commissioner identifies several significant deficiencies in federal environmental management.

On the climate change side the Commissioner notes that the climate change plans are not in compliance with governing legislation (the Kyoto Protocol Implementation Act) and that the plans were not sufficient to meet the Kyoto obligations.
