Ranchers and Wolves: A Better Way

July 31, 2015

In the fall of 2014 I was lucky to meet two Alberta ‘pioneers’ I have admired for some time. They’re not the homesteader-type pioneer, but pioneers in the sense that they raise large herds of cattle and sheep in wilder parts of Alberta, while taking deliberate actions to co-exist with wolves. One lives in the rolling foothills of southwest Alberta, the other adjacent to a Wildland Provincial Park in the Peace country. Their attitudes and actions are a powerful inspiration for conservation-minded ranchers and all who value our large wild carnivores as part of what makes Alberta special.  By Carolyn Campbell

No public hearings are scheduled. Only one Alberta organization, the Alberta Wilderness Association, is independent enough that it continues championing public land and the people's right of access to it. So people must speak individually, as they have so many times before, directly to the premier, the minister of Sustainable Resource Development and their MLA, and remind them of what public land means to all of us, that none of it is surplus to our needs, that we do not want it sold.
