The need to re-think Attawapiskat

The situation in Attawapiskat, Ontario, where people are living in completely unnacceptable conditions, has been deeply troubling and disheartening. My colleagues Janet Sumner and Anna Baggio at the CPAWS-Wildlands League chapter have visited the community several times. They have eloquently expressed their thoughts on the need to fundamentally rethink the future for the north to address social concerns, protect the environment, and make economic progress. Today their views were published in The Toronto Star . I encourage you to take a few minutes to read it, and share your views on it too.
