Please join JLA in helping protect Ontario's forests!
Saturday February 01, 2020The Government of Ontario’s latest proposal is paving the way for sweeping changes to the laws and policies that protect our public forests and the plants and animals that live there.
Among other lowlights, Ontario’s Forest Sector Strategy aspires to DOUBLE the amount of logging in the province, from 15 million to 30 million cubic metres of wood per year - with no commitments to set aside more forests to support wildlife conservation.
Many species in Ontario are already experiencing unprecedented habitat disruption and require more space to adapt to climate change, not less. And in the face of the global climate emergency, we feel Ontario should be reducing its industrial footprint, not increasing it.
