Losing Ground: Time to Embrace the True Value of Parks
Canada’s annual Parks Day takes place on July 19th, 2014. Since 2008 CPAWS has issued an annual report reviewing how well Canada has done over the past year in both creating new parks and protecting our existing parks for the benefit of current and future generations of Canadians. Over the years the review has ranged from celebrating significant progress on new parks to noting a slowdown in progress and highlighting
emerging problems. Unfortunately, for the third year in a row, while there were some good news stories, our overall conclusion is that Canada continues to lose ground in creating and protecting our cherished parks.
