K-Country Issues

Dianne Pachal of the Sierra Club Canada has advised us that there will be a debate today, November 15th, on Alberta’s Tourism, Parks & Recreation Minister’s proposed new parks act (Bill 29).  “It is THE worst conservation-related legislation we’ve seen anywhere in Canada in a generation,” she says.  “It could become law within the week unless enough people write now to stop it and open up consultation on it”
