1)   RALLY FOR OUR FOREST  

When: Tuesday, May 13, 12:30pm
Where: N.B. Legislature, Fredericton

The New Brunswick government’s new Forestry Strategy proposes to slash the proportion of public forest set aside to protect nature.

Ignoring the people’s concerns about how the public forest is managed, the government has gone ahead and signed contracts with J.D. Irving and other forestry companies, giving away a valuable public resource for years to come. These contracts were signed behind closed doors, and it reminds us of the time another government tried to sell NB Power out from under us.

The proposed Forest Management Agreement set to be signed by July 1st would effectively implement the Memorandum of Agreements signed with J.D. Irving and the forestry companies and would be effective for the next 25 years. No Forest Management Agreement!

Endorsed by Peninsula Restoration/Ossekeag Publishing.  See poster attached.
