WHEREAS Environment & Climate Change Canada (ECCC) has broad reaching authority through a variety of Acts and Regulations that affect municipalities; and many times projects are stopped by Environment & Climate Change Canada without a site visit or consultation with the municipality.

WHEREAS these work stoppages have fiscal and environmental impacts. Common sense is rarely applied to the situation & the species that is supposedly being protected.

WHEREAS most Acts and Regulations in place under the administration of Environment and Climate Change Canada apply to all of Canada and the effects of applying that Act to every region of Canada has not been considered.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the federal government for changes to all Acts, administered by Environment and Climate Change Canada, to require local government consultation regarding all Acts, Regulations, and permitting processes that may affect municipal operations or projects.
