ACTION ALERT: Help defend Wolf Lake

Wolf Lake

Wolf Lake

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources is considering changing the ‘forest reserve’ designation for 340 hectares around Wolf Lake, located 50 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, to ‘general use’, which could lead to gold, copper, cobalt and palladium mining in the area. Dalton McGuinty, the premier of Ontario, has said of the forest reserve that includes stands of 300-year-old red pine, “It’s a great place, beautiful forests, great freshwater lakes — clean freshwater lakes…”

A decision on the forest reserve is pending.
