14 months of hard work by CPAWS (SNAP) Quebec as a key member of the SOS Parc Orford coalition has paid off. The Quebec government announced on Monday, May 7that it will reverse its decision to sell off part of Mt Orford National Park. SNAP welcomes this reprieve for the park, and thanks everyone who took action.

However, the government has not closed the door to future condo development – the lands remain excluded from the park, and future development is possible.   SNAP continues to work to ensure “protected” areas in Quebec are truly protected, forever.
