PRO­TECT CARI­BOU HABI­TAT

Alberta Oil - - OIL SANDS REPORT -

Trans Moun­tain crosses sev­eral dif­fer­ent cari­bou ranges and any ex­pan­sion of the pipe­line would re­quire the com­pany to as­sess po­ten­tial im­pacts on cari­bou habi­tat and to mit­i­gate them. This would in­clude sub­mit­ting to the NEB a de­tailed map and sur­vey of each cari­bou habi­tat and a de­scrip­tion of how lo­cal abo­rig­i­nal eco­log­i­cal knowl­edge would be ap­plied to the mit­i­ga­tion plan. Sim­i­larly, any con­struc­tion ac­tiv­ity af­fect­ing the range lands of the cari­bou would have to be re­me­di­ated upon com­ple­tion, and a buf­fer zone of 500 me­ters on ei­ther side of the pipe­line would be es­tab­lished in those ar­eas pop­u­lated by cari­bou.
