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.

A healthy relationship to the wilderness is not in the least incompatible with civilized living. Indeed, I believe it to be an indispensable condition thereof; that no man is truly civilized unless he is involved in and cares for the wilderness.
