Only a few days left to help save Manitoba's boreal peatlands
The groundswell is growing, but we need more people to add their voices to oppose unchecked destruction of Manitoba's peatlands. To get an idea of the footprint of the proposed devastation, check out the map provided by the Wilderness Committee. The expansion this petition is referring to is in red. While it's not the biggest footprint on the map, it will send a strong message to the provincial government at peat mining is not the way to go in this province. By sending this message, we have the chance to change the legislation and hopefully stop all of those proposed mines from being developed, essentially obliterating this peninsula, surrounded by Lake Winnipeg.
