We now have the support of UNESCO on protecting Wood Buffalo National Park from the impacts that Site C would cause as well: “UNESCO has requested that Canada “not take any decision related to any of the development projects that would be difficult to reverse” and to submit the environmental assessment to the world heritage centre. [UNESCO also requested that Canada undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment to assess the potential cumulative impacts of all developments on the Park.] The projects would include new oil sands mines and the construction of dams on the Peace River in British Columbia.”
