So B.C. will finally review its sadly weak Environmental Assessment process. About time!But can First Nations trust the NDP government to really work with them to address the glaring problems and make real and meaningful changes?
The B.C. process has been a bad joke. Travesties like B.C.’s repeated approval of the soundly discredited and federally rejected Prosperity/New Prosperity proposals and the approval of the unsafe and ultimately disastrous Mount Polley tailings dam have long made clear to many that the process is designed to help mining companies, not to truly protect the environment and Indigenous rights.
