CEDAR – “We’d like to see the goals and promises of Canada’s former Environment Minister honoured and furthered,” said Laurie Gourlay, referring to the May 26th, 1986 opening statement of the Honourable Tom MacMillan to the World Commission on Environment and Development.

The president of the Vancouver Island and Coast Conservation Society has just sent a letter to Federal Party Leaders, requesting their support for a ‘Five Point Conservation Plan for Canada’ – one that reflects the ambitions of Canadians and their government some twenty-nine years ago today.
