IN THE NEWS – The Star - Canada missing from global conversation on deep-sea mining

The International Seabed Authority (ISA) has to finalize regulations, standards and guidelines for deep-sea mining before June 2023, but so far, Canada has been largely absent from these discussions, said NDP MP Gord Johns.

“Why isn’t this a priority of the government?” asked Johns.

“We’ve got the longest coastline in the world, we keep seeing the prime minister standing with people like President Macron of France, touting his track record and passion for protecting the world’s oceans, but they’re absent … they missed six opportunities for submission since 2015.”
