Description: On Jan 21, 2010, the Supreme Court of Canada released the decision in MiningWatch Canada v. Canada (Fishenes and Oceans). The Court found that federal agencies designated as Responsible Authorities under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA) could not "scope" projects to avoid the application of the Comprehensive Study List Regulations. On Mar 29, 2010, the federal government tabled the Budget Implementation Bill (Bill C-9). Bill C-9 contained language which would, if passed, amend the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act so as to provide the Minister of the Environment with the express authority to limit or otherwise lessen, the scope of a project for which an environmental assessment is required to be conducted to only "one or more components of that project".
