AWA News: Save the Castle Rally

June 8, 2011

More than 80 people attended a rally, Wednesday June 8, on the steps of the Alberta government’s McDougall Centre in Calgary, to protest the planned logging in the Castle Special Place. Demonstrators heard about the irreplaceable values of the area for its watersheds and its wildlife. Albertans continue to call for better protection in the Castle; not more logging.

When citizens and their representatives in government fail to place a high value on wilderness as a resource in itself, then its disappearance – especially in reasonably accessible locations – is swift and certain.
