Our Minister Prentice

who has another HUGE Secret Agenda with respect to Drinking Water up here,

sent out a press release suggesting
our endorsement. And to be fair, in the report itself, we do give the
Federal Government / Parks Canada high marks for having legislation that
puts ecological integrity first in parks. However, the legislation
hasn't been put reliably into practice this year. As Prentice
notes,"there is room for improvement". It's also worth noting that our
Parks Report from last year was much more positive on the government's
progress under then-Minister of Environment John Baird, and much of this
year's progress was put into motion during his tenure.

The Government's release shows that they're paying attention to the
kudos; let's hope they take the criticism to heart.

Cheers,

"Canada", the topic is "10 best U.S.National Parks". While I appreciate the Canadian trivia, it is somewhat off topic. Yes, the drinking water campaign, is a valid one indeed. Perhaps, the U.S. Park people shall adopt such a measure.

Sorry then since Mother Nature shares our Environment

Alberta opens the door to conservation!

For the first time in 10 years, the Alberta government is giving the green light to creating new protected wilderness areas in the province.

The announcement affects the Lower Athabasca region, where oils sands developments threaten one of Alberta's last, largest wilderness tracts. 20% or more of the region will be protected!

This is is good news for Alberta's threatened Boreal woodland caribou. About 3,000 of the caribou live in Alberta, with about 900 in the Lower Athabasca region.
