In terms of my 82 years, the combined effects of Peal Harbour, Hiroshima, 911, and Chernobyl pale in the shadow

of the energy challenges humanity currently faces.

For this reason I believe Canada’s political parties must cooperate in facilitating the modernization of our county’s National

Energy Board in order for it to become a regulatory body that is transparent, independent, and makes Canada's climate

targets, sophisticated energy projections and climate science, public participation and Indigenous rights integral to every

decision on energy infrastructure and Canada's energy future.

I urge as well that the current Energy East and Kinder Morgan, Line 3 and KXL processes be suspended as well

until the above modernizations have been fully integrated.

The results and expense of climate change must be figured into the expenses of the different energies produced, and then we must err of the side of caution, to protect the envitonment. We must make changes to "green" faster.

I would like the proposed pipeline developments to be delayed until modernization of the NEB has occurred. A democratic process with transparency for these critical decisions is vital and will be helped with the planned modernization.

Dave Cranmer about 2 years ago

I support Toronto350's call to the NEB modernization panel for energy regulation that respects climate science, a just transition to renewable energy, that engages with, listens to, and responds to the public and Indigenous rights to free, prior and informed consent! I also support their demand for a regulatory body that is transparent, independent, and that makes Canada's climate targets, sophisticated energy projections and climate science, public participation and Indigenous rights integral to every decision on energy infrastructure and Canada's energy future.

Thank you

Thank you for asking for the public's opinions. Increase in renewable energy, especially solar. The sun produces more energy than any other energy source. Increase public transportation nationally, decrease car usage. Build more energy efficient buildings. Align with policy with climate change science
Think long term.

Thank you for asking for the public's thoughts and opinions. Switch more to renewable energy, increase public transportation nationally and reduce the amount of transportation by cars. Increase energy efficient buildings. Align policy with climate change science. Think long term.

I am incredibly grateful that the National Energy Board is seeking public input for their future directions.
Canada's energy future needs to be one of renewable energy. The government has talked about taking action on climate change, but has not yet done enough to move the country in that direction. Building pipelines is not a way to build for the future. It is a short-sighted investment, and damages Canada's image further on the international scale. As an Albertan, I know why people have pushed for new pipelines to be built. However, they lock Canada into continuing to be an oil-exporting country when the global market demand will begin to decline. As a country, we need to catch up and keep up with the technological and social innovations of the future.

Hello, I am amazed at the scope and the depth of knowledge, experience and public reporting that is available through the NEB. It was well done. I submit to you, the big problem with the NEB is that the reviews and speed of the approval process is too slow. For instance, how many pipelines got approved and executed in the last twelve years? Virtually, nothing got done because of merry go rounds of study that have damaged the Canadian economy and turned tens of billions of foreign investment out of our country. It hurt ALL of us as a confederation, regardless of race or gender or whatever diversity group we get chopped up into. Billions of dollars of benefit and future benefits for our social programs are gone.

As all Canadians expect exponential, high GDP growth this cannot be achievable without right management with our local in NA partners. I am a pro supporter of the amero currency because its the shortcut to lead canada to the next superpower, but as with the crisis of our CAD that can get renewed and fixed depending on high production of our natural resources is weakened because we are not using innovative solutions, ill give you an elaboration, if we had a volcano anywhere in our prestigious land, and we had sufficent existing technology for establishing infrastructure capable of generating electricity from the thermal energy harvested from lava we will be the first nation to be energy independent.
