[OPIRG-EVENTS] PROTECTING CANADA'S NATIONAL PARKS, Wednesday




YOU'RE INVITED!

PROTECTING CANADA'S NATIONAL PARKS
A CPAWS SYMPOSIUM

Canada's national parks are threatened by visitor over-use, commercial
developments, new roads, ski hill expansions, forest and mining
developments outside park boundaries, pollution and global climate
change.

The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is hosting a symposium
"Protecting Canada's National Parks" that will focus on achieving
ecological integrity of the parks system.

Time:           7:30pm - immediately following the CPAWS Annual General
Meeting (which begins at 6:30pm).

Date:           Wednesday, September 20

Location:       National Arts Centre in Ottawa (Panorama Room, directly
above the box office).

The symposium will be chaired by CPAWS Vice-President Harvey Locke, and
will include presentations from:

 Pamela Wright, Vice-Chair of the Panel on the Ecological Integrity of
Canada's National Parks

 Clifford Lincoln, MP, Chair of the House of Commons Canadian Heritage
Committee, which recently examined the amendments to the National Parks
Act

 Nik Lopoukhine, Executive Director of the Ecological Integrity Branch
of Parks Canada

In March 2000, Sheila Copps, the federal Minister responsible for
national parks promised to make "ecological integrity  the centrepiece
of every decision we make for the future of Canada's national parks." 
The symposium will tackle how that pledge is being implemented.

Everyone is welcome to attend both the AGM and the symposium.  
Free Admission!
