Lands and Forestry Minister Iain Rankin teased that he’d be making an “exciting announcement” on Monday. Here are some truly exciting announcements that he could (and should) have made before declaring his intention to run for premier:
- That Owls Head Provincial Park Reserve would be rightfully reinstated to Our Parks and Protected Areas Plan.
- That Nova Scotia would protect all of the properties in Our Parks and Protected Areas Plan.
- That Lands and Forestry would adopt ecological forestry by reducing clearcutting, protecting old-growth forests, introducing a silent season to protect nesting birds, and finally, implementing the recommendations of the Lahey report.
