Will the National Forest Strategy Make a Difference

Publication Date: 
May 1, 2003
A Sierra Club of Canada Assessment - May 1, 2003 This is the first time that the Sierra Club of Canada (or indeed any campaign-based environmental organization) has participated actively in the development of the National Forest Strategy. In the past environmental organizations have for the most part been wary of the National Forest Strategy, viewing it as largely a public relations exercise of relatively little significance in actually leveraging positive changes in policies and practices affecting Canada’s forests. The Sierra Club of Canada decided to set aside this skepticism in order to participate actively and constructively in the development of the new National Forest Strategy.
