‘National Defence is hoping it can finally start moving on an already diminished and delayed plan for establishing a key naval facility in Canada’s Arctic after submitting a new environmental impact assessment to the Nunavut government this week.’
Ok, that’s nice – the Canadians have finally taken a step closer towards building their naval facility in the Arctic. But it does worry me: they submitted an environmental assessment. The thing is that the abovementioned article is rather old, the most recent says:
‘Nunavut regulator approves Arctic naval facility’
WTF does that even mean? Without full review? They are going to refuel military vessels, it is a strategically important position for God’s sake! How come they ignore environmental issues?
