“The United States recently made a proposal to allow the incidental take of migratory birds – the unintentional, but predictable killing of birds, or the destruction of their nests or eggs. This proposal is of great concern to Canada, given the potential negative impact on our common species of migratory birds. In the interpretation of the Government of Canada, the proposed amendments to the US Migratory Bird Treaty Act are inconsistent with the objectives of the Convention for the protection of migratory birds in Canada and the United States. During the public consultation process, Canada also raised concerns about the lack of quantitative analyzes to support this decision and the failure to consider the full impact on birds crossing our borders. “
