Contact Provincial Leaders to Show your Support for Sustainable Forestry

 

STEP ONE: Copy the text below into a blank email and sign with your name and mailing address (including Postal Code)

 

Honourable David Orazietti, Minister of Natural Resources

Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario

Laurie Scott, PC Critic for Natural Resources

John Vanthof, NDP Critic for Natural Resources

 

Dear Honourable Members:

In recent years we have seen increasing opposition to forestry activities and a related reduction of available fibre under the guise of environmental protection, with little consideration of the economic and social needs of our communities. 

Recent activities by some environmental groups appear to assign a higher value to the environment than they do to economic and social development needs.  Their attacks on the forest industry represent a direct assault on the communities across Ontario that depend on sustainable forestry to provide jobs for their families.

A REAL Treehugger knows that sustainable forestry:
Renews and replenishes the ecosystem; promotes
Economic growth;
Accumulates more carbon; and is the
Lifeblood of communities!

I am a REAL Treehugger.  I understand the importance of sustainable forestry to ensure the ongoing support of jobs in our communities.  I am committed to the “three pillar approach” to sustainable development, which recognizes that responsible, balanced policy requires consideration of economic, social and environmental  impacts.

To ensure a balanced approach, I call on the Government of Ontario to conduct transparent socio-economic impact assessments prior to decisions being made on all new or revised legislation, regulations and policies that may impact forestry.

Thank you,
