Fraser Institute Media Advisory: Will changes to the environmental assessment process make energy projects—including pipelines—less political? New study coming Thursday, May 31

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Thursday, May 31, in the midst of the Trans Mountain pipeline saga, the Fraser Institute will release a new study on the environmental assessment of proposed resource development projects in Canada.

Federal Reforms and the Empty Shell of Environmental Assessment spotlights proposed Trudeau government reforms (contained in Bill C-69) to the environmental assessment of major resource development projects, such as dams and oil and gas pipelines, and whether or not the changes will make the process less arbitrary and political.

Bill C-69 is currently up for third and final reading in Parliament.

A news release with additional information will be issued via GlobeNewswire on Thursday, May 31 at 5:00 a.m. (Eastern).
