Be aware of wildernesses 

All Nova Scotians have the right to voice their comments and concerns regarding the shaping of public wilderness areas

To the editor,
Recently, the Department of Environment released a public discussion document for the province’s three new wilderness areas: Blue Mountain–Birch Cove Lakes, Ship Harbour–Long Lake and Shelburne River. The paper, “Socioeconomic Impact Analysis of Designating Wilderness Areas,” identifies a range of land uses occuring on these properties. The document also identifies activities that will potentially be excluded from occurring on these lands once they are designated wilderness areas. Members of the public are encouraged to submit comments and identify land uses that are important to them.

Protecting these three areas is a crucial step towards the restoration of Nova Scotia’s wilderness. These wilderness areas are found on our public land. As such, all Nova Scotians have the right to voice their comments and concerns regarding the shaping of these three areas. Get informed, and then make your voice heard.
