• If you’ve been wondering how the changes to the Canadian Navigable Waters Protection Act affect us in New Brunswick, here’s the scoop. Since 1882, Canadians lakes, rivers and streams have been protected from development that would impede navigation (pipelines, bridges, power lines, dams, mining and forestry equipment, etc.). Now a body of water has to be listed on Schedule 2 to be protected by the Act. And for NB, what is on Schedule 2? The Saint John River. Open season on all the rest.
