Nt uranium miner to improve waste water management in an effort to improve the health of a community of people who live on the water.
“The mining boom was a good thing for some people. And we know now that they would have enjoyed that much more if the oil and gas companies had kept that boom going,” says the environmental lawyer, former city engineer and former NDP member of Parliament Jim Cuddy.
The town is near a federal reserve, which means the province also has jurisdiction to oversee the treatment of oil and gas by-products.
Cuddy says the government could have also asked local residents and workers to sign a document, including a promise not to participate in mining operations if they don’t want to see their own waste water dumped. He says that could save the health and environment of people living near the town.
There’s no guarantee a court would anatyasastra.comgree and, because the mine will be the only work allowed there, it could be difficult to get it regulated, he says.
Cuddy has also signed off on a letter from local Indigenous leanatyasastra.comders saying the government needs to give the residents and workers of this s우리카지노mall town the kind of environmental protection and clean-up that’s in their treaty rights.
Pulaski says he hopes that, for the first time, the government will address his concerns about the mining boom and other aspects of the oil and gas industry’s legacy in Alberta’s southern communities.
“What they have done is to tell Albertans that this is something the people of these oil sands cannot, in the eyes of those that are charged with protecting their waters and resources, stand idly by,” Pulaski says. “This is what’s going to happen: We’re gonna lose so much water, this will have an effect on people who are already living in poverty in this area, and there’s a chance they’ll be without health and food.”
The oil and gas industry says that mining will allow Alberta’s oil and gas industry to reduce the amount of emissions and therefore reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming.
In a statement last week, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers said, “If there was no mining, there would be much less oil production around them.”
