McClelland Wetlands: Mining Our Outstanding Peat Wetlands Should Be Passe

October 31, 2012

Wildlands Advocate Article, October 2012, by Carolyn Campbell. “Suncor, Total May Not Proceed with New Oil-Sands Mines” read a late July 2012 Dow Jones newswire article. This was important information to consider for the fate of the ecologically and aesthetically outstanding McClelland Lake wetland complex in northeastern Alberta.

If I were asked to illustrate a scene of utter serenity and peace, I would choose a picture of a mother grizzly wandering across flower-covered slopes with two small cubs gamboling at her heels. This is truly a part of the deep tranquility that is the wilderness hallmark.
