Summary of the matter addressed in the submission:

The Submitters assert that Canada and Quebec are failing to effectively enforce various environmental laws concerning migratory birds, endangered species, and local municipalities.

The Submitters object to the establishment of wind farms in migratory bird corridors, particularly in the area of L’Isle Verte in the St. Lawrence River in Quebec. They allege that allowing wind farms to be located in such areas is contrary to legislative objectives, including preventing the disappearance of species and protecting migratory birds.

Names and citations of the environmental laws in question:

Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994

Migratory Birds Regulations

Species at Risk Act

Règlement de contrôle intérimaire relatif à la construction d'éoliennes sur le territoire de la MRC de Rivière-du-Loup
