Attention All New Brunswickers!
There are two bridges being built in Mount Carleton Park. One of the bridges ( Moose Brook Bridge) is being built in a major moose yard and through a significant wetland. The other bridge ( Bathurst Lake Thoroughfare), which once was a footbridge, is being built through a wildlife habitat and stream.
The Department of Environment have given an exemption to the Department of Tourism to build these two new bridges. They do have a Watercourse Alteration Permit.
The Friends of Mount Carleton Park believe that a full EIA is required. We want the construction to stop and we want the Department of Environment to conduct a full EIA on this construction project.
We are asking everyone to call Minister Serge Rouselle at 453-2690 or send an email at: email@example.com
to voice their concern and to call for an EIA on the 2 bridges construction sites.
