A Message from Nature Nova Scotia:

Nature Nova Scotia is joining the fight to save Owls Head Provincial Park, and we need your help!

Earlier this year, Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Christa Brothers recognized several important points in the applicants’ case, but ultimately ruled that there is no “recognized common law duty of procedural fairness owed by the Crown to the public at large.”

We think this needs to change.

So, as Bob Bancroft and Eastern Shore Forest Watch prepare to head to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal, we at Nature Nova Scotia are joining the fight to help fundraise for the coming legal battle.

1. Via Nature Nova Scotia’s Canada Helps page (suggested for donations up to $100)

2. By cheque (suggested for donations of $100 or more)

“The underlying question in this appeal is whether Nova Scotians ought to be informed before the government makes decisions affecting the fate of ecologically important lands, especially those lands that have been identified as protected. We believe the answer is yes and that the courts play an inherent role in promoting fair government decision-making.”
