E-3695 Petition to the Government of Canada

This petition was presented to the House of Commons on May 17th, 2022 and the government will respond when sessions resume in September 2022.

Whereas:

We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:

1. Stop construction of all new facilities used by highly polluting industries, such as cement plants, nuclear waste facilities, factories, and so on, until there has been in-depth consultation (accepting refusal, if that is the case) with the indigenous communities whose natural surroundings will be affected by the project;

2. Request that a comprehensive review be conducted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans on the impacts on wildlife if the construction project affects interprovincial or international waters; and

3. Request that a review be conducted by a neutral third party and not by firms hired by the companies attempting to build the projects, and that the costs of these reviews be paid for by those companies.
