Liberal MP Siobhan Coady says she is concerned that funding has not yet been approved for the Northeast Avalon Atlantic Coastal Action Program (NAACAP) group which is seeking a renewal of their partnership agreement with Environment Canada.
In a news release, Coady said NAACAP has pioneered a formula for engaging community stakeholders and providing action while advancing projects in an open and transparent forum.
"Unless there is a renewal through Environment Canada's Atlantic Priority Ecosystem Initiative or some other source, funding for this very worthwhile initiative will expire on March 31 of this year," Coady said.
"They have played an important role for example in creating awareness about the importance of environmental issues such as the need to clean up St. John's Harbour and the challenges facing coastal areas of our province. In supporting groups such as ACAP, Environment Canada is getting good value for taxpayers' money because these groups leverage other resources and contacts which they have in the community."

Organizations: Environment Canada

Geographic location: St. John's

    Let's hope the Feds realize great groups like NAACAP who watch over our surrounding environmental state of our waterways and and harbors and beaches get that funding restored! Especially the education aspect of a clean environment.

    Ms. Coady, all program spending is under review, including that of this this group which must have written you a letter for this to have caught your attention.

    As the critic for Treasury Board, in the name of all that is Holy, can't you find a more important issue for Newfoundland than this????
