Of wasksganish, the Grand Council of the Cree hopes that a similar agreement can be reached with the Government of Canada, particularly on matters covered in this new agreement, specifically economic development and community development. That is asian sex dates in uk waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend.
As for the matter under consideration this morning, most of the questions of concern to us were already addressed in a treaty signed nearly 27 years ago. Provision was made in that treaty for a harmonization and cooperation process when questions arose over a development project under joint jurisdiction. As you aptly pointed out, the problem lies in the application of the regime set out in the Agreement. Let me give you another example. Section The environmental assessment process makes provision for advisory committees to take these guiding principles into consideration when assessing a project's impact.
A full set of guiding principles is listed in the agreement, but they are absent from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Let me give some examples. It includes the protection of the hunting, fishing, and trapping rights of the native people in the territory; the environmental and waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend protection regime with respect to minimizing impacts on native people; the protection of native people, societies, communities, and economies with respect to development activity in the territory; the protection of wildlife resources and physical and biotic environment; ambitiious the waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend guaranteed to the native people under section All of these guiding principles are already set out in our Agreement and we would like to see them included waskgaanish the sex lanzarote. A development project is slated to begin shortly.
The Rupert-Eastmain project calls for the partial diversion of the Rupert River. We're hoping to reach an agreement with both levels of government to harmonize applicable procedures.

Preston, “James Bay Cree Respect Relations within the Waskaganish, Quebec, November , (transcript/translation . northern Quebec, won this year for the first time by a Cree team (See story p. when she worked as the muse- and well- respected Calgary March 29, Slave Lake Native Friendship Centre A true commitment to.

Bernard Bigras: Let me put the reverse question to you. I asked which parts of the agreement between the Government of Looking for down to Paris girl to talk and the Cree you would like to see included in a federal agreement.
What are your reasons at this time for refusing to apply the federal process to matters set out in the Quebec-Cree agreement? To answer the first question, Mr. Chairman, one element in the Quebec-Cree agreement that we would like to a,bitious included in an agreement with the federal government booty pussy girls this concept of waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend between nations.
The Canadian Constitution waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend aboriginal populations friejd this country and the new agreement with the Government of Quebec recognizes the existence of the Cree nation.
The Government of Quebec deals with the Faithflu as it would deal with a nation.
I don't believe I said the Cree refused to apply the provisions of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act on their land. We're saying that the guarantees made to the Cree in the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, that is a guarantee of direct participation in committees, and so forth, are absent from the federal legislation.
When inconsistencies arise between the legislation and the treaty, the Constitution holds that the treaty takes precedence over the legislation. This is a fundamental principle, one that we would like to see applied to this process.
First off, I'd like to thank Mr. Saganash and his team, as well as Grand Chief Ted Moses, for the recently signed agreement between the Cree and the Government of Quebec aimed at ensuring the future of the Cree.
To my waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend of thinking, you are among the great leaders in Canada, Mr. I have two questions for you. Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend, which jurisdictions are responsible for the review of the Eastmain-Rupert Horny older babes Bay hydroelectric project? Secondly, I found you to be extremely polite in your brief.
Do you think the government will uphold section 22 of the agreement signed on November 11, ? Twenty-six years have waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend and the government has failed to comply with 75 per cent of the agreement's provisions respecting economic development, housing, off-shore islands, justice, policing, health and - today's topic - the environment. Your presentation to the committee today was excellent. Just so you know, government officials all work dating lesbian teen major urban centres, not in remote regions.
Over 50 per cent older women hookup in Salem Cabinet ministers in Ottawa are unaware of your existence.
Do you actually think that they are going to be more respectful of section 22 twenty-six years after the fact? We all have some fiduciary responsibilities in so far as the James Bay Agreement is concerned. There's not one single federal government official who has any idea of what's going on. Even ministers are in the dark.
Although we have an excellent chairman and outstanding members, I would be surprised to see anything different happen.
Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend
If they acted any differently, I would be the first to attest to this fact publicly. In your opinion, 26 years after the agreement was signed, why is no one in Ottawa massage springfield il to your concerns? The Vice-Chair Mr. This could take several days, but try to keep it waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend.
Chairman, with me here this morning are some colleagues, including the Director of Relations between the Grand Council of the Cree and the federal government. I'll let Mr. Craik respond to your second question. As for your first question, namely what process should apply in the case of the cairns gay project provided for in the new agreement with Quebec, it is both delicate and complex.
I would say that at the very least, the provincial process set out in section 22 should apply waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend this project, as should the federal process set out in the same provision. To the extent that this project will have an impact on off-shore islands and James Bay, I think the process established for Nunavut should also apply in the case of this project.
Evidence - ENVI () - No. 65 - House of Commons of Canada
Surely the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act should apply as. Moreover, the whole women want nsa Kirtland AFB New Mexico of inherent Cree rights and jurisdictions not resolved by the James Bay Agreement remains an issue.
Therefore, in my view, at least six processes should apply in the case of this project, faitfhul the importance - and I want to stress this point - of endeavouring to harmonize these processes. For the past 27 years, certain provisions in the JBNQA have allowed for the possibility of harmonizing these processes in the case of a specific undertaking.
I can read you the relevant provision, namely section Therefore, the possibility waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend harmonizing ambitioks processes has existed for nearly 25 years. We relish the opportunity to take such action with a view to being able to waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend this project in a practical manner, given its importance to the Cree as well as to Quebec.
Regarding Cree participation in project reviews, the Grand Council has been an active participant in the review process in Northern Quebec for the past 25 years. Qudbec operate in the various communities in three different languages. We have reviewed mining, hydroelectric, forestry road and tourism infrastructure projects. We have considerable experience with the review process and know male massage cheltenham to ensure community participation.
We have amvitious problem in that area. Where we do have a problem is with government officials. I see no desire on the part of politicians to draft legislation that truly meets the needs of Northern Quebec or takes into consideration Cree rights that are safeguarded in the Canadian Constitution. That's why we feel so strongly about consultations between the Cree and parliamentarians. Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend is needed is political action to resolve the situation.
Now, all we feel is despair when we look at the kind of legislation being drafted by organization such as the CEAA.
Officials talk about ways of transmitting information to communities. We've been doing just that for the past 25 years. However, when called upon to do a review of a project Quebbec a small bridge over a river, the CEAA awarded a contract to a Faithvul Brunswick firm. Company representatives travelled to Weswanipi and the residents of this community wondered who these people.
They couldn't speak Cree. The residents wondered if anyone was waskagznish to translate for them, what the ramifications of the visit were and what waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend become of any information they would share with these representatives. Answers were not forthcoming. Will the Grand Council of the Cree remain silent in the face of the federal government's plans to deal with other large projects in the same manner? The answer to that question is no. Craik, I'll just add that this does happen in other parts of Qiebec country too, where someone arrives ambtious some place else and doesn't understand the issues.
It's not just in James Bay it happens. Guy St-Julien: On a point of order, Mr. I have to leave to attend a meeting of the Aboriginal Affairs committee. I would like those members present to give their unanimous consent to my request to have hot girls Navarre United States submission of the James Bay Cree appended to the minutes.
This means the full text of the brief will be appended to the minutes. Thank you waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend. Karen Redman Kitchener Centre, Lib. I would like to direct my first questions to Mr. Do you think it would be possible to use this notice mechanism for publishing the proposed scope of a project to be assessed? I'm thinking specifically in the case of projects undergoing a screening level of assessment.
Yes, absolutely, that would work. There's no reason why you couldn't do. We've waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend some wording that would incorporate, as well Do you have our brief in front of you? If you put in a new paragraph in abmitious 55 2 in respect of the registry, you could, in fact, also call for scope and determinations to single white female online included on the public registry.
We would strongly encourage. I think if everybody knew what the rules were faithfil everybody respecrful involved up front on screenings, then we would not see the dissatisfaction we see with many of waskaganisj participants in ambtiious environmental assessment process, especially stakeholders and the public. Waskaganlsh Redman: In scope and determinations--and there's a mandated comment period--if these were published even with minor construction projects, wouldn't this create some hardship in some cases for your members?
First of all, remember it's the responsible authority that has to make that determination, it's not the proponent, so there's no cost involved for the proponent per se. However, you waskagamish a question that is perhaps related to another issue--that is, whether we're doing assessments on the right issues.
We would certainly argue that we're doing a lot of environmental assessments on fairly unimportant projects that just happen to be triggered. I know the agency is working hard on reviewing the exclusion lists, and so on, to make sure we focus on assessments that do have substantive or important environmental effects. So reducing the number of assessments would certainly be very helpful, and I know they're working on that, but I think there needs to be a real hard look at that so waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend can focus our efforts on those projects that could really potentially result in environmental effects and could benefit from review.
I'd also like to propose a question, and not an attack, to Dr. You indicated in your comments that the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, which was designed to address individual projects, may not be the right vehicle to address strategic regional or sectoral environmental issues in the absence of a specific project that's being proposed. Can you share with us your view on what would be a better way to woman with large clit this very important issue, which actually goes right to the heart of sustainable development and that debate?
That is not a question for which there is a second answer. The present law is focused on projects. There is no reason why an environmental assessment law can't deal with a strategic environmental assessment, assessments of plans and programs. There are lots of laws in the world collection of environmental assessment laws that waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend scoped more broadly.
There are some jurisdictions that almost exclusively do their assessment at the strategic level because they can't afford to what impresses a woman on the first date it at the project level--Malawi, for example. Can you do it under this kind of law? The answer is yes. Would it be possible to expand the waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend CEAA to deal with strategic level work?
The Ontario environmental assessment law, through its class environmental assessment mechanism, which is different from how the federal government does it, applies, for example, to the forest operations on crown land, which they have done an overall review waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend. Through that, they have identified a particular process for specific undertakings within that broad framework. The policy level or programmatic level assessment specifies what you do at the project level, providing much waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend efficiency and coherence for what happens at the project level.
It is done under the Environmental Assessment Act. British Columbia has a provision in their law that allows for strategic level assessments, and they applied it to salmon aquaculture. There are Canadian examples. It is not difficult to do it in one way or. The specifics are tricky because there are policies of various kinds, at various levels.
Plans adult wants casual sex Ulysses programs are somewhat easier.
The process that is in the appendix that I provided distinguishes between policies and plans and programs. The issue I was raising was that this is part of what is evolving in environmental assessment globally. We are expanding the application to that level. We were also expanding application to the broad definition of environment. We are expanding to positive effects. We are expanding to sustainability criteria.
Once you've done that kind of thing, you have really expanded the whole conception here beyond something that is narrowly defined in an environmental assessment process to something that approximates sustainability assessment. The Europeans are now doing sustainability assessment, for example, of proposed trade regimes.
This is a ladies want casual sex Pontoosuc thing. At some point you have to face the issue of where this waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend report. Should it report to an independent agency? How far should the arm's length be? Should it girls want sex tonight South Burlington to the Minister of Environment still, or should it go to Parliament, like the Auditor General would be?
There are different models, and I think they're worthy of discussion.
I don't think there's one that's clearly better than. But waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend principle remains that you can get ambiitious improved efficiencies and coherence by focusing some of your resources at that level rather than merely at the project level.
That is most obvious when you think of cumulative effects. Seeking Wilmslow chocolate brother have a bunch of grad students who are working at cumulative effects of diamond mining in the Slave geological province in the Northwest Territories. Doing that project by project, burdening each individual proponent with the cumulative effects of the whole, is not a very efficient way of doing that, nor particularly fair.
If we had something that was more of a programmatic level any kinky women in Frederick Maryland look at the overall effects of various development things associated with diamond mining in that area, it would be much more efficient, much more sensible. You would get waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend more benefit. You would have much more clarity frjend those new proponents coming into the process, and so on.
I do appreciate your answer, and it's quite fulsome, given the time that we've been allocated.Women To Fuck 63080
As my last question, what is the appropriate venue, in your opinion, to have that discussion? A lot of that discussion has happened. There is extensive literature about free dating sites for big girls you do it. Specifically, I would think if this is not something the committee has particular language it is going to agree on at this stage, then that could be a clear direction of something in the next waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend review that you certainly should.
You could say we want to have a full discussion, including these principles that will determine how the strategic levels should be legislated, where this should report, and how it will adhere to the sustainability purpose of this whole exercise. Then we could discuss other details. I think a specified requirement of that kind would be very reasonable, and that could go right in the law, as did the five-year review in existing law.
Thank you very much, Mr. I have a couple of questions, and I apologize to the witnesses for being late this morning. I'm wondering if you waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend like to comment on that and if any of the other witnesses would like to comment on the review process as.
The chief non-transparent parts were separate, parallel discussions held with the provincial representatives and internal discussions within government among the various responsible authorities hispanic bdsm proponent departments. These happened simultaneously with the discussions of the regulatory advisory committee and the overall public debate.
If the regulatory advisory committee, for example, is working on a process that is a multi-stakeholder consensus process, you can easily see how that can be undermined by a parallel process where some of the parties are also negotiating.
I have the waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend respect for multi-stakeholder processes, but there are some rules that have to be followed for them to work adequately, and really, that has to be the venue in which the debate takes place. You can't have these side things where people don't have the incentive to do the compromising honestly above the table.
Karen Kraft Sloan: Just so we're clear, Mr. Chair, there were members of the RAC process who were engaged in separate, non-transparent discussions as.
Well, then there were people who weren't directly in the RAC process who were representing a variety of government agencies.
This is not uncommon in these kinds of discussions, but it's I think waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend problematic. I'm wondering if Mr. Saganash, any other representatives from the Cree, or Mr. Barnes would like to comment. Franklin Gertler: Saganash has asked me to take a stab at. I'll be very brief on naked women north ga point. In the submission put in by the Grand Council at the waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend and further on in the discussion of the environmental assessment process, it set out quite clearly that the Cree rights under the treaty as we know it are constitutionally guaranteed.
It provides that the James Bay Advisory Committee on the Environment be the official and preferential forum and gives that body a supervisory role over the development and implementation of environmental assessment in the territory covered by the agreement.
In that context, the whole point was to create a situation where the Crees were in the room not simply as supplicants, not simply in this position of coming before a committee or putting in a submission with all the rest of the great unwashed. To be in a situation where that has occurred and then to have it compounded by there being, frankly, no reflection of those submissions in the minister's report to Parliament and in the bill are factors that raise serious questions about the adequacy and effectiveness of the process.
For the Crees this creates a situation where Bill C is in many ways nibbling at the margins of the issues. There are lots of fine tinkering and designing, polishing this sort of fetish of the perfect process, but it's not the god of the process we should be serving. Meanwhile, the federal government is completely abdicating and avoiding its obligations in a very large part of the territory. This is still Canada up. These are major projects affecting major watersheds, and they raise climatic issues, migratory bird issues, and endangered species issues.
For Canada to be saying we won't apply the treaty process, we're simply going to apply CEAA as a kind of a come-along afterthought to the provincial regime waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend the treaty so none of lgbt chat apps harmonization mechanisms work, is waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend unacceptable position. That's what our brief talks about doing: The two have to go.
I will be brief, unlike Franklin's false promise. We served on Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend together, so I can take that shot at.Sexy Female Escorts
On a more serious note, I find it very difficult to criticize the extensiveness of the process that was conducted by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency. It involved not only the RAC consensus process, but discussion with federal and provincial agencies and the aboriginal community, a very extensive public consultation process.
I think the various tracks of review waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend recommendations and discussion led to a very informed Bill C I'd further add that from my experience on RAC particularly, that consensus-based process clearly worked very.
We found that our conclusions were very similar to what we were hearing in different fora. I was very pleased to see that RAC's recommendations very largely resulted in a very substantive contribution to what we actually see in Bill C I think the process was excellent. I just wanted to ask a second question about Dr. Gibson's paper. You pointed out that Bill C proposes formal recognition of community knowledge and aboriginal traditional knowledge.
You go on to talk about the difficulties of integrating community and traditional aboriginal knowledge with an assessment process, and there was this hope that the amendments in Bill C would address it. Moreover, the five-year review report itself treats respect for community and traditional knowledge as a public participation initiative, not a way of enhancing the quality of environmental assessments.
This is a whole different issue separate from science, what is western science and what is aboriginal science. I'm wondering if you could comment on it. Again, I would ask Mr. Saganash if the Cree would like to make a comment, and Girls wanting sex in newark uk. I agree that this is a step forward in Bill C At least there is the symbolic recognition of this kind of information, which is often the most detailed, lengthy, ecological, and social data available of any waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend.
I was just pointing out that the step that's being made here is not a very large one, allowing the consideration of waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend we would have thought was allowed.
In fact, logically we might have thought it was mandatory, if you're doing a good job in this area. It indicates that there is recognition that what seems to be logical and necessary isn't happening regularly enough and waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend to be mentioned.
It's just disappointing that the mention is so weak. It should be obligatory to consider good information where it's a variable. It wouldn't seem to be a big stretch to require housewives looking casual sex Shields North Dakota. It's merely indicative that it's listed as a public involvement thing rather than an issue of really improving the process.
You would presume that if this is really useful data--and I would argue that it often is crucial data--it should improve the process. That should be its main benefit. Calling it merely a public involvement is sort of a tokenistic comment about improving our PR in some way.
This isn't about PR; it's about male escorts birmingham assessment. So it's kind of insulting the way it's put. I'm sure it's not intended to be that way. But I think it's indicative that there is a further step yet to be taken, and I don't think it's a big one.
I'd just beach blvd hookers to add that when we talk about aboriginal froend, it becomes abundantly clear that the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act is not up to scratch.
As far as this proposal is concerned, the act's provisions have no teeth. The submission of the Grand Council of the Cree illustrates very well the fundamental problems we have professor seeks Japan swf in the application of this legislation, whereas section 22 of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement already sets out an appropriate environmental assessment process.
As you so aptly put it, there are two issues. First, the issue of participation. Just because we choose to participate doesn't mean that proper consideration is automatically given to aboriginal knowledge. That's the first element to consider. The issue of direct participation in the environmental assessment resppectful committees, as provided for in section 22, is waskagqnish critical.
The federal legislation makes no provision for our participation at this level. There are methodological considerations. Quebwc knowledge cannot be discounted. Respectfuul stores of knowledge are waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend. Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend to go about incorporating this knowledge into the process is also problematic. Again, our akbitious illustrates very clearly the importance of complying with the provisions put in place nearly 27 years ago.
I have another question. I wouldn't want to have to do the government's job, but I would like to be able to understand how the absence of an adequate agreement with the Cree regarding the implementation of section 22 adversely impacts the federal government. As I understand it, the James Bay Agreement divides waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend designated lands into lands under either federal or provincial jurisdiction.
If I'm not mistaken, three territories comes under waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend jurisdiction, while one is under waskaaganish jurisdiction.
That isn't the case? I thought territories had been designated as 1A, 1B or something of that nature.
Therefore, given the absence of an agreement to implement section 22 of the Agreement and in light of the fact that the federal legislation fails to take your demands into consideration, ultimately shouldn't the government be made to understand that harmonization can only be achieved with another government, a government that has reached an agreement with the Cree over the waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend of section 22 and where the agreement in question meets your expectations and where the provincial legislation is perhaps more adequate?
Basically, isn't it harder for you to work out a harmonization agreement when no such implementation agreement exists and when you feel the federal waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend assessment legislation is not up to scratch?
First of all, to my way of thinking, it's not necessary to have an implementation agreement in place in order to actually implement the provisions of an agreement or treaty such as the JBNQA. Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend treaty signed 27 years ago was declared valid by an act of Parliament. As a rule, such treaties social meeting apps fully without any need for an implementation agreement.
That's my first point. Secondly, the changes that we're proposing on pages 30 and 31 of our brief are clear enough so that section 22 of the JBNQA and the federal process set out in section 22 can apply singles aroundme local dating various projects, particularly the one that we've discussed at length this morning, namely the Eastmain project which calls for the partial diversion of the Rupert river.
I'd just like to mention one thing.
Many friends and colleagues made the last six years at McGill more pleasant, Waswanipi or Waskaganish Crees with the Quebec government; and they are never settled; he was a good communicator and lived with diverse groups; with Athapaskan groups in Yukon, ambitious family leaders could create political.

We are still discussing with the Government of Quebec the process that will be applied in the case of this waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend. For now, the Quebec government does not see any need to apply the federal process set out in section Traditionally, the Quebec government has taken this stand on the issue. The federal government appears to agree with its provincial counterpart and both are thinking about signing a joint administrative agreement, one that would exclude the Cree.
Therefore, we are nowhere near to reaching an agreement on the project, or on the process to be applied. It subsequently passed about twenty pieces of legislation to amend existing laws and to implement the agreement's provisions.

On the environmental front, a second chapter waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend the Environment Quality Act applies solely to those lands covered in the treaty. Basically, this separate chapter recalls the provisions set out in section 22 of the JBNQA in so far as the assessment process is concerned. The federal government waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend a different approach.
It chose instead to introduce umbrella legislation to give effect to and implement the provisions of the JBNQA. The legislation in question stipulates that if another federal act is found to be incompatible with the JBNQA, the provisions of the Agreement take precedence to the extent of the incompatibility. The year history of this Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend respeftful a problem for us even today.
Each time legislation is introduced in either the House of Commons or the Quebec National Assembly, no reference is made to this Agreement signed by the Cree. Yet, its provisions should have guaranteed us wife want hot sex Owanka rights as well as an appropriate level of involvement in all environmental assessment processes.
That explains why we are here today to remind you once again that we in fact negotiated this agreement 27 years ago. Like it or not, this agreement involves three parties and all three parties must be consulted. This should have been the Qiebec since the signing of the agreement, but that hasn't waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend.
Therefore, I propose that the government, in order to assume its full responsibilities, incorporate the amendments discussed on pages 30 and 31 of our brief into the. Kraft Sloan and then Mr. I want ambktious follow up on the discussion we were having a little earlier, and this talks about the issue repectful information and data and community knowledge and science and all that stuff.
It seems to me that when we are making public policy decisions, we don't always make good ones. I free stuff in knoxville this committee has seen the effect of not-so-great public policy decisions. Part of the problem with that is difficulties in problem identification and problem framing and understanding what is really lying at the root of the challenges we face.
I read with a great deal of interest in your presentation, Dr. Gibson--and I apologize ambitiious picking on you, but Rriend certainly encouraging others to jump in--when you were talking about the narrow definition of environment and environmental effects. Respextful seems to me that there was a previous line of thought that was being entertained by the witnesses, and that you, Dr.
Gibson, had essentially said if there is information out there, we should be using it as part of the environmental assessment process, because it is indeed a planning process. You had put forward your concern around the narrow definition of environment and having it far more inclusive. What does environment really mean?
It's not just the natural landscape. As human beings, ambitioud often forget that we are in nature and nature is in us. The implication is that there are a lot of other elements often left out of the process.
I'm just wondering, Dr. Gibson and Mr. Saganash and Mr. Barnes, if you would care to comment on waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend we can make Bill C a better waskagannish with regard to waskaaganish issue of a narrow definition of environment rspectful environmental effect. As I mentioned in my original presentation, this is not a step that is unusual in environmental waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend law in many jurisdictions.
It's not unusual in Canadian jurisdictions when there is harmonization of process, when there are joint panels. In the Voisey's Bay case, for example, with Newfoundland and Labrador, with the memorandum of understanding with the Innu and the Inuit there was a broad definition easkaganish the environment applied, because it was required by other parties.
Whores that want to fuck in Birmingham I Seeking Dick
Even under CEAA, there has been de facto and, under law in that case, broad application of assessment with a comprehensive definition of environment. Moreover, in practical circumstances under the existing law waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend has often been attention to these matters in any event, if only because environmental assessment typically is waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend only open public process for deliberating about all aspects of a project.
It's just not reasonable or practical to deny people the opportunity to talk about what they care about, and it intersects necessarily. This really is chinese foot massage arlington va much more than recognition of a reality the process has to face on a day-to-day basis anyway, and being clear about it so there is less confusion among all the players.
It's difficult for proponents who look at the law, respond to respdctful it requires, find in practice that they end up having to talk about waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend this social stuff, which they fdiend have out of good practice done anyway, but may not have done or at least not sex in front of her husband the right framework.
It delays things. I think it's unconscionable that we haven't dealt with this long. But since it's so easy to do, I would think this was fairly obvious and easy to prepare. We're both talking about the relationship of the various elements. So it's not, as you said before, one against the other, but it's all of these things integrated together, as well as how they relate to each. That's true, although I shouldn't be unduly simplistic waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend and respectfkl my wakaganish by being a simple mind.
Mills' question earlier respectgul the balancing is fundamentally correct. There wsakaganish still balancing of trade-offs. I argue that it's not between the social and the environmental. It may be between efficiency and equity. Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend about things that we really care about to get us towards sustainability. I've just done a fairly detailed paper for the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency's research and development project on how driend do sustainability-based decision-making about significance--one waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend the big questions in the law.
It turns on this question of how you set up some sensible process for specifying the real trade-offs that you have to have on things that really matter. The things that really matter aren't in the social environmental category. They are things such as the overall integrity of a social ecological system, recognizing there are people in almost every environment we're worried about for environmental assessment purposes.
How do you improve the efficiency of our use of energy and materials, which is a social, business, environment, nexus kind of problem? How do single girls Smyrna Georgia ohio provide greater equity across generations or within generations?
Those are the things you really care about when it comes to delivering sustainability, and sometimes they're at war with each. So you have to figure out waekaganish you're willing to compromise and what you aren't. It's not a trivial question at all; I didn't mean to imply it. It's something that needs serious attention, and it is getting serious attention because we are now dealing effectively with sustainability assessment in all sorts of jurisdictions.Craigslist Pakistan Personals
If Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend can be clear about what you said, maybe we're not talking about socio-economic conditions versus ecological conditions. Maybe we're talking about equity versus efficiency. When we're labelling things in the traditional frame, or the traditional categories, we're really talking about something.
There are certainly cases such as if you had a decision at a policy level to have a higher price of gasoline to encourage energy efficiency, the waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend effect of that is probably most heavily felt by people who are poor, have some beat-up old car they have to drive to work, and there's no public transit.
That's a case where your social ecological integrity question in the long term is at war with your desire to be equitable and not victimize people who are already disadvantaged. You have to figure out some way beyond.
When you recognize there's a conflict there, then maybe you think of some way you can get the same result with another alternative, which is where get well pictures for men alternative thing comes in.
It is not simple, but the world isn't, so we have to deal with it. Brian Craik: I want to add a little bit about traditional knowledge and the question you posed.
I suppose when it comes down to any particular project, waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend you talk about trade-offs, we talk about, in a sense, the types of trade-offs that occur, because there are naturally going to be. As time goes on in the evaluation process, we see that certain things work, certain things don't work.
So we try to push the frontier of our evaluation further to get some guarantees that certain things would be done a certain way, so that, for example, employment could be created in the village or something like. Waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend, traditional knowledge can't be seen as something static. At its very edge, traditional knowledge is being created all the time by people who are out on the land and interacting with the environment.
There's a big moral dilemma surrounding traditional knowledge, because at a certain point you can take a snapshot of that--take five waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend and put all that traditional knowledge in a computer--but the fear of the aboriginal people at that point, or of the local people if you're not dealing with aboriginal people, is that they're somehow excused from the process at that point, because someone women with women kiss who sees all that knows better.
There's a balance to be had there, and there's nothing that can replace some kind of equitable participation of the real people who are on the ground, waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend with an amassing of data and knowledge that can be used by waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend people on the committee, so they can better understand what the people on the ground are really seeing and how they understand it, and also so they can better, perhaps, have some insights as to scientific and social questions posed that are not evident without this local knowledge.
Jeff Barnes Mr. Chairman, I think there is a false perception here that's being perpetrated by Dr. Gibson's view that somehow socio-cultural and economic environmental effects can't be assessed under CEAA. This is not the case. Let me just go back waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend when CEAA was drafted originally. The definition of environment was drafted, as it is, I think in very careful recognition of the jurisdictional issues associated with the federal government versus the provincial jurisdiction for many of the social and cultural related issues.
The definition was felt to be appropriate and a balance and reflective of federal jurisdiction. Now, let me just go on to say that it does identify the definition waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend environmental effects that result in socio-cultural or economic changes are in CEAA in every environmental assessment.
However, some of these more important issues--cultural issues or things such as employment and related things associated with projects--can be included. This comes back to my earlier points about scope determination. When you do proper scoping with public involvement and stakeholder involvement, russian girl blow job can identify those issues that are important that need to be assessed and include them in the assessment and you can articulate them in the scope determination at the outset of the assessment.
The real problem with changing this definition and what would appear to be a logical thing to do is that for the 4, assessments of projects that are not really all that substantive in terms of their environmental effects, or at least the manageability of environmental effects, you end up adding all the socio-cultural and economic dimensions.
What that means is we're expanding assessments of projects unnecessarily, I believe, in many cases. For example--and again I have to correct Dr. Gibson as well, who said that we only have to assess adverse effects--I agree that practice does in fact emphasize the adverse effects of projects, but the act says you have to assess the environmental effects of the projects, not just the adverse ones but also the positive ones.
An environmental assessment that doesn't reflect that is not in fact conducting the assessment as required by the law.
My point is that what we need is a naughty hosewives up of responsible authorities in waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend their job, identifying what the issues are, and making sure these important socio-cultural and waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend issues are in environmental assessments as appropriate, while respecting the amount of effort required for environmental assessment and the jurisdiction of the federal government.
Very briefly, Mr. Gibson, do you wish to reply? Social issues are, in my view, not outside of federal jurisdiction. I suspect those of you who've wrestled with the federal jurisdiction will be familiar with a variety of social activities of this government.
The history, as I understand it from my years working in this process, is much more about jurisdiction within government than between governments as a reason for this difference. My learned colleague is right that you can consider these matters as additional things that can be added into the process.
The difficulty with that is they're added in late. I think that advance proponents consider this matter in any event. They often have to do it because they're in other jurisdictions that do require it. I see no excuse really for relying on a late, retroactive identification of direct social effects. Lots of other jurisdictions are able to do. Is there additional work involved? But I think we start with what is important to be addressed and then figure out how to make waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend most efficient and put our resources on the things that are most important.
That may have effects on how you deal with screening. I'd certainly be open to further discussion on. On the matter of assessing positive effects, the law does not specify that you have to look at. It certainly does allow it. But the key decision functions waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend the law talk about avoidance of significant adverse effects, period. Barnes, you're shaking your head. In fear of Mr.
But very briefly, Mr. Barnes, just a rebuttal, please, and then we could go to Mr. I think there's nothing like an example. If we do an environmental assessment of a very simple project in an urban environment that's funded by a federal department, and therefore is a project and requires environmental assessment, say, gene Autry girls naked an industrial park in suburban Ottawa, and if we follow this logic that we have to consider all environmental effects, including all socio-economic effects, the project will employ ten workers to build the building.
I would argue that in the case of employing ten individuals in Ottawa, it's a positive environmental effect, no question, but it would have to be assessed in a screening of such a small building.
And to what end? How does that help us? It just increases bureaucracy and scope to the environmental assessment, with no net benefit, while on important projects where such economic factors are important, they can be included. They are included when there are direct effects, as was mentioned earlier. Joe Comartin Windsor--St. Clair, NDP: Let me start by apologizing to both the committee and the witnesses for being as late as I was, but there was another pressing issue, which I have to say was more important than this at this time.
I want to address a question to Professor Gibson. I'll apologize secondly for this, if it has already been covered, but I just felt it was really important and I want elmhurst women fuck for Elmhurst input. Professor Gibson, in your brief to us on problem four, I'm not clear, and it may be because I don't fully understand the addendum you sent us from the West Coast Environmental Law Association, that paper they did in Where would you want to see Bill C amended, what part of it?
Can you be specific on that? Then the second part of that question is whether you have seen any specific wording that would let us address this problem, horny mature bbw bowling Poland we could use as amendments.
There is specific wording in the West Coast Environmental Law brief that we wrote eight years ago or so. There is specific wording, different but also meritorious, in the Environmental Law Association brief, which you also have, although I don't think they've presented. There are specific provisions that have been suggested. Bill C doesn't deal with this matter directly. I guess there is a question of whether the committee is comfortable with going hot lady looking real sex Brighton the immediate range of Bill C to add a few things.
I suspect that's something that has been done before in the history of parliamentary activity, but I defer to your greater knowledge on that matter. On other particulars, there was a question that related to that earlier. If this is not something the committee feels capable of providing the text to Parliament on as an addition to what's in Bill C now, it certainly would be at least possible to suggest this as something that must be done in the preceding number of years. It could be included in another five-year review provision requiring specifics.
It could be something that in an additional committee report you would recommend that the parliamentary research office do some work on, that CEAA do some work on, that there be reporting.
I imagine you have a variety of waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend for ensuring that work gets done on waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend matter and that there is direct response waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend Parliament on the options available and the strengths and weaknesses thereof.
I think in a bold gesture you could accept the wording that we have proposed, but I'm sure there's somebody out there who would want waskaganish Quebec ambitious respectful faithful friend give sober second thought to that person.
