public input needed on draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
YOUR INPUT IS NEEDED NOW!

The Alberta government is seeking input from all Albertans on the draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan, and has extended the deadline for public input until Feb. 28.


Please call/write/circulate to everyone you know who cares about the wilderness and ask them to comment on this.

Environmental groups are slamming the plan saying it is just business as usual – favoring industry above all else, as well as motorized recreation (ATVs etc.). For the wilderness it is death by a thousand cuts … people might not see a big difference tomorrow, but it will have an impact generations down the line. Albertans need to speak up to ask the government to put in place strong measures to protect the environment, and the wildlife and birds that need it to survive and thrive. Not only that but intact forest ecosystems protect human health and well being (through flood mitigation, etc.) and eco-tourism, which depends on wilderness, can be a great addition to the economy (not just motorized recreation). Alberta’s wilderness is unique in the world – people from around the world come here because of it.

Call, email or meet with your MLA in person.



Contact the Minister of the Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, Robin Campbell, email: esrd.minister.gov.ab.ca

Call Toll Free Alberta: 310-ESRD (3773)
Toll Free: 1 877 944-0313


Also important: fill out the draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan workbook, which is how the government is gathering input from Albertans. You can fill it out online at www.landuse.alberta.ca

It can be printed out and filled in on paper as well. The deadline to submit comments is Feb. 28. (it was extended from mid January).


Comments can be brief; phone calls are good too. The CPAWS and Y2Y websites have talking points to highlight and ask that people write about the things that matter the most to them.


Filling out the workbook is good too. It is quite detailed and could take a while to complete (maybe an hour or two) but CPAWS says you don’t have to fill out every question ….


Please pass along this information to everyone in your network who would be interested in commenting on this. It is a really important issue for all Albertans who care about the wilderness.


Thanks.
