Opposition to Frontier Mine Oil Sands Project

Reference Number

I am opposed to the Frontier Mine Oil Sands Project: This project will have adverse effects on nearly 1 million migratory birds that use the four major flyways that overlap this area. This project will introduce nearly 5,000 hectares of tailings ponds that have indirect and direct lethal impacts on migrating birds. The conditions proposed are not effective at mitigating lethal impacts of tailings ponds, and will not address the long-term—and often irreversible—loss of wetlands and old-growth forest habitat. Stronger conditions should be added that appropriately address the risks that tailings ponds pose to migratory birds.
