NGO Letter to Environment & Parks Minister on Little Smoky-Duvernay Land and Water Management Crisis and Solutions

June 17, 2015

Letter to Alberta’s Minister of Environment and Parks from 10 Alberta conservation organizations, including Alberta Wilderness Association. The groups asked to meet with the Minister to discuss solutions to long standing issues in the Little Smoky Upper Peace-Upper Athabasca region. This area is the last refuge of arctic grayling, bull trout and woodland caribou in the lower foothills ecoregion of Alberta. It is under great pressure from energy industry and timber harvest impacts, but better decisions today are possible and will greatly improve the legacy we leave to our children.

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.
