North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance

September 28, 2012

Wild Lands Advocate update, August 2012, by Madeline Wilson. Wilson celebrates the achievements of this organization, and its hard-working members, as they attempt to bring together stakeholders within the North Saskatchewan River watershed to protect and improve its ecosystem and water quality.

“Since 2005, the NSWA has been working to complete an Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the NSR watershed, a significant accomplishment and huge undertaking, which was completed in June 2012. (…) If the provincial government fails to heed these recommendations, it will be our loss indeed. Both the board of directors and the staff of the NSWA are made up of highly educated and experienced individuals coming from a wide variety of backgrounds. The expertise, tenacity, and commitment this group has devoted to completing the IWMP is commendable and worth both recognizing and celebrating.”

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
