No David, Alex has been doing this for years, long before you and the others came on board so to speak.
One fine lady that is trying to save our wild fish from what has happened to our precious wild salmon wherever fish farms have been world wide, long before they came to our waters.
Once again, no one from your side wants to talk about that here.
Of course when you have a government that seems to want to gut the Fisheries Act along with not doing more in protecting habitat I guess promoting fish farms tells us what we are up against.
Here is an example what I am saying above, from the CBC.
Moves gut environmental protection, say critics
Environmental groups and opposition parties, however, insist the government is merely giving big energy companies carte blanche by dismantling the checks and balances that protect the environment.
"After slashing funding to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, they’re now saddling it with the obligation to do more complex reviews, faster, with fewer resources," NDP environment critic Megan Leslie said Tuesday.
"You're going to have less time, less resources from the federal government to actually look at and understand these projects and less opportunity for the public to point out errors and omissions in submissions by proponents," John Bennett, executive director of Sierra Club Canada, told CBCNews.ca.
Green Party Leader and MP Elizabeth May said the moves go farther than what industry stakeholders were asking for.
"This kind of savaging of the environmental assessment process are more about speeding the development even more than the industry needs," May told CBC News Network.
May and Bennett both said the overall impact from the government's move comes not just from changing the rules, but from cutting budgets of federal departments such as Environment Canada, and firing hundreds of scientists who currently contribute to the environmental review process and work to protect Canadians from environmental disasters.
"What's really happening here is that the federal government is abdicating its responsibility and trying to get out of the protecting-the-environment business," Sierra Club's Bennett said. "Why don't they go all the way and shut down Environment Canada and be honest and say, 'We don't give a cupcakes'? Because that's what they're doing."
The government counters that by not reviewing small, minor projects, it can focus more resources on major ones, as well as back up "enforceable" assessment decisions with financial penalties of up to $400,000 for companies that refuse to comply with decision conditions.
David Collyer, president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, applauded the measures, saying they will address some of the uncertainty companies face over how long their applications take in the existing process.
Collyer said he believes that eliminating agency overlap and redundancy allows for more resources to be directed to assessments of major projects that have a larger potential for environmental impact.
"I don't see anything in any of the announcements that would indicate to me that there's any intention to reduce environmental oversight," Collyer told CBCNews.ca.
"The focus on responsible environmental outcomes, we all expect that and Canadians expect that."
In addition, the Harper government will spend $35 million over two years on marine safety and $13.5 million on pipeline safety to help protect the environment, Oliver said.
That will include requiring double hulls and mandatory pilots on oil tankers, as well as more inspections of oil and gas pipelines.
