AWA Briefing Notes re Onefour Research Farm Closure

June 14, 2013

The closure of the Onefour Research Farm is part of plans the federal government has announced. The current federal lease for the research farm operations do not expire for some time, however the federal government may choose to surrender the lease back to the province of Alberta at any time. AWA believes the announcement, the time we have before the lease expires and the pending South Saskatchewan Regional Plan provide both threats and opportunities for conservation of this vastly important native prairie grassland.

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.
