The Anishinabe Nations of The Great Turtle Island have adopted The ISO 14001 standard

The Anishinabe Nations of The Great Turtle Island have adopted the ISO 14001 as the preliminary foundation for the Anishinabe Environmental Assessment Authority.

The ISO 14001 standard specifies a process for the control and the continuous improvement of an organisation’s environmental performance. The management tool enables an organisation to identify and control the environmental impact of its activities, products and services; to continuously improve its environmental performance; and, to implement a systematic approach to set and achieve environmental objectives and targets.The ISO 14001 standard applies to those environmental aspects identified and controlled or influenced by the organisation.  The ISO 14001 standard does not specify environmental performance criteria but merely how to develop an EMS.

Currently within Anishinabe Tribal Nations the policy for the Environmental Assessment will be based on organisations certified to the highly recognizable ISO 14001 standard. At the end of December 2008 there were over 188,000 organisations globally that had been issued ISO 14001 certificates. A total of 155 countries had organisations participating in the scheme. The diagram below illustrates the ISO 2008 Survey results for ISO 14001:2004 standard.

ISO 14001 Standard - 2008 Survey ResultsThe ISO 14001 standard differs from ISO 14000. This is because ISO 14000 refers to the standards of the environmental management series developed by the International Standards Organisation while the ISO 14001 standard is the document containing specific EMS requirements.

Environmental Assessment for Anishinabe Nations of The Great Turtle Island

Anishinabe Nations of The Great Turtle Island Environmental Assessment – examines a project to determine what the environmental, social, economic and health implications may be; Public interest decision – the applicable AEB Board  decides whether it is in the public interest to let the project go ahead;

Approval with conditions – multiple regulators give formal approval to the project under various pieces of legislation. These approvals are in the Tribal Nations and People of The Tribal Nations interest, decision could be made by three potential boards, depending on the type of project.

All significant Resource and projects which affect or potentially effect the Environment will be required to go through the Anishinabe Environmental Assessment Process.

There are also environmental assessments conducted in Turtle Island which fall under the responsibility of ESRD and are mandated by EPEA regarding Water.

The Government of The Great Turtle Island, Individual Tribal Nations in the Federations, businesses and Bank institutions also undertake environmental assessment processes under their own laws and authority, for a variety of purposes.

EIA reports typically include:

• a detailed description of the project;

• the location and environmental setting for the project, and baseline environmental, social and culture information;

• the potential positive and negative environmental, health, social, economic and cultural effects of the proposed activity;

• plans to mitigate potential adverse effects and to respond to emergencies;

• information on public and (First Nations) Tribal consultation; and

In full retreat: the Canadian government’s new environmental assessment law undoes decades of progress

In full retreat: the Canadian government’s new environmental assessment law undoes decades of progress Robert B. Gibson a a Department of Environment and Resource Studies, University of Waterloo, Canada, N2L 3G1 Version of record first published: 11 Sep 2012.

Article Link. 

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Act 2012, which came into force on 6 July 2012, virtually eliminates the core of federal-level environmental assessment in Canada. Under the new law, federal environmental assessments will be few, fragmentary, inconsistent and late. Key decision-making will be discretionary and consequently unpredictable. Much of it will be cloaked in secrecy. The residual potential for effective, efficient and fair assessments will depend heavily on requirements under other federal legislation and on the uneven diversity of provincial, territorial and Aboriginal assessment processes. This paper reviews the key characteristics of the new law in light of 10 basic design principles for environmental assessment processes, and considers the broader international implications of the Canadian retreat from application of these principles.

Turtle Island Tobacco

There is a rumor of Turtle Island Tobacco being designated as contraband by the Canadian Government. To set the record straight, The Governing Nations of The Great Turtle Island was here long long before the European White-man came to Turtle Island. It is with this in mind that the Europeans have deceived through legal trickery and fraud the people of The Great Turtle Island with hearsay and forged documents for hundreds of years.

The aim of the legal trickery and fraud stems from the white-mans attempt to control the Sovran Nations of The Great Turtle Island, including but not limited to the Resources of The Great Turtle Island, and the Trade and commerce of The Nations and People of The Great Turtle Island.

We invite The Attorney General of Canada or The Attorney General of British Columbia, the RCMP or any other provinces or any party interested or attempting to perpetuate the fraud, let them prove that they are legal entities beyond Corporate Entities by submitting an Original Certified Legal Copy of The British North America Act from the House of Lords in The UK as legal proof of the Entities of CANADA and The Provinces being valid.

The Certified True Copy of The British North America Act of 1867 as held and recorded in the House of Lords in the UK, shows planely that the two houses Commons and Lords signed off on the BNA ACT of 1867, however The Queen did not sign the legal document, and as such the Document held in Ottawa is a fraudulent copy, that has perpetuated the fraud of CANADA, this has legal bearings on all trade and commerce put across by The Province of British Columbia, all The Provinces and CANADA, the consequence of such fraud being perpetuated by those who knew of the Constitutional legality over the last 150 years is staggering in regards to business contracts made between The Provinces and CANADA and any other entity.

If the proof is not submitted within 60 days from Jan 1st 2016 then know now and forever that no jurisdiction of Canada or The Province of British Columbia or any Provinces exist as anything other than SEC Registered Corporate Entities and as such by masquerading as A Sovereign Nation of CANADA these corporate entities are acting Ultra Vires that is beyond the scope of their ability to act legally.

With this in mind the onus of proof of those who have any interest in the corporate entity of CANADA, or Province of British Columbia or Provinces to either provide such certified copies or face prosecution under UCC for fraud as individuals or entities that are complicit in such fraud.

The Province of British Columbia and The Provinces and CANADA are hereby on 60 day notice to provide such documentation or leave all matters pertaining to The Sovran Nation of The Great Turtle Island and Trade and Treaties, in regard to trade and commerce and any such treaties as The Nations that make up The Nations of The Great Turtle Island.

As of this date Dec 31st 2015 any and all names of any individuals or entities acting on such fraudulent bases with any documents submitted will be individually charged with fraud, govern thyself accordingly.
