Action Alert: Woodland Caribou Battle Goes to Federal Court

June 21, 2011

Tomorrow (June 22) AWA and our environmental and First Nations colleagues are in court in Edmonton, seeking a court order to force federal Environment Minister Peter Kent to recommend emergency protection of critical habitat for threatened caribou herds in northeastern Alberta.


No public hearings are scheduled. Only one Alberta organization, the Alberta Wilderness Association, is independent enough that it continues championing public land and the people's right of access to it. So people must speak individually, as they have so many times before, directly to the premier, the minister of Sustainable Resource Development and their MLA, and remind them of what public land means to all of us, that none of it is surplus to our needs, that we do not want it sold.
