Anyone know details of the proposal to open the island to oil drilling and seismic blasting?
The message came to me from Gretchen Fitzgerald (National Program Director, Sierra Club Canada Foundation).

In October, Parks Canada launched a national public consultation to help develop a management plan for Sable Island, a sensitive ecosystem known for its wild horses, massive grey seal colonies, and hundreds of birds and plant species. Part of that consultation included debate into whether camping should be allowed in the park and how visitation should be monitored.

But earlier this week, the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum (CNSOP) Board issued a call for bids for oil and gas exploration off the coast of that very same island.

Sable Island’s designation as a national park reserve means that no oil and gas drilling may take place on the island itself or within one nautical mile of its shores, but wildlife and climate change activists say that buffer zone isn’t good enough.
