AWA News Release: Government breaks policy to allow industrial use of Little Smoky caribou range

January 24, 2006

“The new sale of oil and gas land leases in the heart of habitat for the Little Smoky Woodland Caribou herd, and logging by West Fraser are contrary to the government’s own policy,” says Helene Walsh of CPAWS: The 1996/1997 Operating Guidelines for Industrial Activity in Caribou Ranges in West Central Alberta state: Industrial activity can occur on caribou range provided the integrity and supply of habitat is maintained to permit its use by caribou.
