WHEREAS British Columbia and Canada have differing legislative responsibilities and utilize separate environmental assessment processes to support their respective roles in approving major resource developments;
AND WHEREAS the use of separate environmental assessment processes results in a fragmented and disconnected evaluation of impacts and places an excessive burden on development proponents:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NCLGA and UBCM encourage British Columbia and Canada to amalgamate their environmental impact assessment processes for major resource developments.
