Bring on the next boondoggle in N.L. with World Energy GH2 

Credit:  Letter, Oct. 13, 2023, saltwire.com ~~

As a taxpayer in this province, I find the environmental assessment published by World Energy GH2 – Project Nujio’qonik on Aug. 22, 2023 very alarming.

It alarms me because it clearly states that flora, fauna, and environment will be negatively affected by the construction and operation of this mega-project. It only states that these negative effects will be “mitigated.” How? It doesn’t say.

It has completely failed to identify the negative effects of the project on the 4,600 people who live on the Port au Port Peninsula and does not seem to refer at all to the Codroy Valley, which was not mentioned in the project from the beginning.

This environmental assessment is a sham and part of a shameful, undemocratic process on the part of this Liberal government. After the boondoggle of Muskrat Falls, it seems this government is absolutely committed to rushing through a mega-project such as our planet has never seen before without proper oversight or study by experts in the field.

Have we learned nothing?

This project needs a federal assessment because many of the possible negative effects are part of federal jurisdiction, especially fishing and the ocean.

Instead, this highly inadequate and alarming environmental assessment is all we, as taxpayers, are going to get.

This environmental assessment is only a box to be ticked in the rush to get this project sanctioned. It should be an environmental protection assessment, so that this very dangerous and ill-considered project could not go ahead without proper expert oversight and democratic input and study.

But Minister Davis has this power. He can convene hearings on this project so that proper oversight and expert commentary on the project’s claims can be given to the public.

Will Minister Davis do this? Or will this Liberal government continue its shameful undemocratic process of sanctioning this next boondoggle.
