Saskatchewan environment and elections op-ed
Saskatchewan’s natural environment provides generous economic support to the province. The monetary value of ecosystem services including clean air and water, soil conservation, protection of pollinators, grasslands, forests and wetlands ranges in the billions of dollars. But these lands will only continue to provide as long as well protect them.

Renewable Energy: A transition to a sustainable future
A transition to renewable energy would benefit Saskatchewan in more ways than one. Energy security would stimulate local economies, reduce conflicts over massive energy projects, and allow the province to thrive no matter the political or economic climate of other regions. New employment opportunities and industries create incentive to keep young people in the province. Reducing our dependence on fossil fuels mitigates the risk climate change presents to ecosystems, public health, and economies at home and around the world.

Grasslands, Forests & Wetlands – Nature’s Carbon Capture & Storage Solution
Effective conservation of our wetlands, forests and grasslands through initiatives such as the elimination of illegal drainage, the creation of protected areas in our boreal forest and the creation of programs that effectively protect and manage our remaining native grasslands can be achieved while also allowing for economic prosperity. And while these initiatives are providing habitat for species at risk, migratory birds or aquatic life, they also take us a long way down the road to meeting our global commitments on climate change and carbon emissions.

Protected Areas: Saskatchewan’s “Geography of Hope” at Risk
When we remove protection and conservation programming from Crown lands—particularly in our grasslands ecoregions, which are already under so much pressure for development—we are in a sense robbing the future of its biodiversity. As we head into a provincial election, we should be asking candidates what their party will do to meet Saskatchewan’s RAN commitments in all ecoregions, to ensure that we do not leave our children and grandchildren with an even larger conservation debt.
