Summary: 

Energy and Sustainability

Not only is the current "business as usual" approach not sustainable, it is drastically deficient in responding to the threats to ecological stability posed by climate change.

Public Involvement

West Coast Environmental Law Association (WCELA) commends the B.C. Energy Council for its extensive public involvement process. The consultative groups were a good idea, and the sections of the Strategy resulting from their work contain helpful, detailed recommendations. The government should follow the Council's leadership in involving the public with whatever process or institution is used to continue with the development of energy policy.
