Hi Everybody.

Just wanted to make sure that you are aware of the proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act that have been posted under the EBR.

The government is making it easier for industry to proceed with development projects by neutering the ESA.

This issue is huge! And the deadline for responses is this Monday.

Please send in your comments now! The EBR reference # is 011-7696 so you can see for yourself.

Are you talking about Canada or the USA, and what's the "EBR"? Any links?

Thanks, P.

The Ontario Environmental Bill of Rights dictates that all government ministries must post notices of any proposed activity that may impact the environment on the EBR Registry. The following extract is taken from the EBR website ( ... uIndex=0_1).

What's on the Registry?

The Environmental Registry contains "public notices" about environmental matters being proposed by all government ministries covered by the Environmental Bill of Rights. The public notices may contain information about proposed new laws, regulations, policies and programs or about proposals to change or eliminate existing ones.

Each notice tells you:

- where you can find the details about the proposals
- how and where you can send your comments
- the deadline for having your comments considered

When final decisions are made, you will be told how many and what kind of comments were made, as well as the impact, if any, the comments had on the decision. You will also be told whether and how you can appeal and challenge the decision.

But the Registry is more than just an electronic filing cabinet.

You can use the new, recently improved search capacity to find out about proposals that affect your community.
You can create personalized search requests to help you track the progress of specific environmental proposals.
You can now send in your comments electronically, making it easier for you to comment on the environmental matters that you care about.
Most importantly, the Environmental Registry allows you to participate in decisions that affect the environment.
