AWA News Release: New Bill to Address Public Engagement in Public Land Sales

September 26, 2012

The transfer of yet another 14,000 acres of public land in southern Alberta last week with no public discussion underscores the need for a new, transparent process in the decision to sell public lands. Bill 202: Public Lands (Grasslands Preservation) Amendment Act, which will have its second reading in legislature this fall, would require ecological assessments and a transparent public consultation before the sale of public land. While the Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) is fundamentally opposed to the sale of public land, in particular land that has significant ecological value, we support Bill 202 as a step in the right direction.

I love bears and the wildlands where they live. Bears have fascinated me, scared me ‘til my heart pounded, and inspired me… They have helped me to learn about the diversity of life on earth and how nature works.
