The Canadian Environmental Network and its provincial affiliate networks need your help!

Historically, the Canadian Environmental Network and its provincial affiliate networks including the NBEN received annual core funding from the Government of Canada. This was used to facilitate networking on environmental issues across the country, coordinate national and provincial issue-based caucuses, coordinate ENGO participation in federal public consultation processes, and maintain open lines of communication between ENGOs and the federal government.

You can still send in your comments until end of day Nov 21 (Monday) on the environmental assessment report about the proposed snowmobile trail at Mount Carleton Provincial Park. If you're not sure what to say, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society - NB Chapter has summarized some of our key messages here: http://cpawsnb.org/images/upload/key_messages_EIA.pdf

Please send comments or questions to: lynn.white@gnb.ca or mail to: Lynn White, Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture, P.O. Box 6000, Fredericton, NB E3B 5H1.
PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 8 , 2016  Contact: Mary –  369-1995/mdelav45@gmail.com

STOP SPRAYING OUR FORESTS

  The long delayed Report on Glyphosate from the NB CMOH, has been released, and its bland conclusions are that human health risks can be reduced if label restrictions are properly followed.   This is in startling contrast to the World Health Organization, WHO, that has named it a “probable carcinogen”.   Who to believe  ?  

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.
