Title: Widening the Health Lens in the Environmental Impact Assessment Process: Lessons Learned in the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project.
Speaker: Laura Chow, Environmental Health Officer, Built Environment Team, Vancouver Coastal Health
Summary: The George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project is a large scale project that elicited a number of strong opinions, both for and against, the removal of the existing tunnel and its replacement with a 10-lane bridge. This presentation will firstly provide an overview of the project, and will then discuss Vancouver Coastal Health's Built Environment Team's involvement in the Environmental Assessment process. The presentation will review the health issues that the team brought forward in its comments; the learning opportunities that emerged from its participation; and a prospective look forward at how the team hopes it can be more intimately involved in similar projects in the future.
