The new National Energy Board members MUST be made up of individuals that have NO CONNECTION to the oil and gas industries, but have an extensive knowledge of environmental practices, First Nations rights and attitudes and knowledge of sustainable alternative energy technologies that WILL REPLACE the oil and gas industries if Canada is to reach its greenhouse gas reduction goals by 2030. If nothing changes there will be further degradation of land and marine ecosystems and global warming that will result in $Trillions of drought, famine, flooding, wildfires, and other severe weather anomalies.

The panel had two meetings with the National Energy Board, six meetings with other groups and one meeting with an individual before any of the public sessions. Could you please post all of these submissions.

Stop ripping off Canadians Nationally with Energy by a rogue Board fancying greed off the public obviously not doing their jobs based on Acts, Legislation and Laws! DO YoUr JObS aS MANdatEd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is only one way to modernize the NEB- prioritize renewable technologies, and stop building pipelines, and stop fracking. Anything else, given the history of pipeline rupture into our waterways, lakes and rivers- is nonsensical.

Please research geothermal in Iceland, and solar in California, and take the best practices of renewable technologies internationally as the basis of ending pipeline building to the tar sands in Canada. We are destroying our land and water to profit other countries.

Also, please stop denying that the forest fires in Fort McMurray were not created by tar sands emissions. There was no snow pack in the forests to stop these fires from spreading, as there has been historically before these companies were built, and the causation of heat from the emissions from the tar sands companies in this area drying this ground to permit this vast area of the fire is obvious.

As far as future mandate is concerned the NEB should be promoting and researching renewal energy. In particular it should support and study the viability of deep borehole geothermal energy than NRCAN has stated could provide base load electrical power generation for all of Canada's needs. In this undeveloped power source deep hot brine from the Western Canadian Sedimentary basin is pumped to the surface and passed through a heat exchanger. The withdrawn heat is used to power a turbine in a secondary loop using an organic fluid with a low boiling point.

All National Energy Board reviews must address Canada’s climate change targets and related international obligations around reducing GHG emissions. Science-based GHG targets and doing our fair share to reduce emissions must be part of the consideration for approval of any new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Project assessments should question the extent to which energy infrastructure either helps achieve or hinders our federal commitment to the Paris agreement and the pan-Canadian climate framework.

The NEB needs to consider, and draw decision makers attention to, the degree to which a project approval will increase total Canadian GHG emissions.

The economic viability of projects needs to be better assessed, taking into consideration the overriding goal of the government and Paris signatories to transitioning off of fossil fuels. It makes no sense for the NEB to approve projects that put us on a path to either furthering dependence on fossil fuels, or building mega-projects that will soon become stranded assets.

To ensure that data used for decision making is science based and unbiased, the NEB must use experts other than the proponent to provide key information.
The legitimacy of the NEB modernization process hinges on the extent to which it can ensure the full participation of diverse Indigenous groups and lo0cal communities in the modernization review. The NEB should actively support involvement of all interested parties and the public as a key component of evidence gathering, decision-making and monitoring. Interested parties should have access to the information, resources and expertise required to present their interests and cross-examine proponent information.

Energy regulators should ensure frequent and credible life cycle monitoring and oversight of projects it approves. The NEB should work closely and cooperatively with the EA process.

We need to stop investing in oil infrastructure, stop subsidizing oil companies, and start subsidizing renewable energy solutions. Canada risks falling behind economically and environmentally to continue down the path of oil. Just because we have the oil & can extract it doesn't mean we should. Now is the time to switch directions. We need local, clean solutions to energy production that don't require widespread destruction of the landscape and ecosystems. Canada's Amazon is the boreal forest, our Giant Panda is boreal caribou -- we are smart enough, progressive enough, to find solutions to have our energy, our boreal forest and caribou too.

We need Energy East YESTERDAY. Lets stop being so idiotic while Saudi Arabia profits at our expense. This is brain dead. Build it NOW. Put people to work and keep all the money in Canada. You're welcome.

The NEB has no public trust. I agree with the comments made to you by Marc Eliesen. We need a board the looks out for Canada and it's future and not building strand assets for sunset industries. I'm lucky since I can retire and fight these unscientific decisions (kinder morgan LNG) that you have made.

The NEB should have put out a survey and created multiple methods of engagement. This aside, the NEB should have a legal duty to consult First Nations.

Laara Mixon, M.A. 13 days ago

The NEB has never been suited to what we know today as "environmental assessment" and any further involvement in this area should be removed from it's mandate and left with the environmental assessment process in the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. The NEB mandate should be limited to economic, technical and energy security matters.
