The petition to Honourable Lloyd Hines (Minister of Department of Natural Resources), Keith Irving (MLA Kings South) & the Honourable Stephen McNeil (Premier) was initiated by Jennah Larkin of Wolfville. She writes “It has been shown time and time again that clear-cutting forests leads to soil erosion and infertility. This has very negative consequences on the animals and plants which inhabit, or are near the area being clear-cutted.
Kejimikujik Park will not be immmune to these effects,as many herbivores will lose their food sources due to soil infertility and changes in temperature and moisture…Please join me in asking the Nova Scotia Minister of Natural Resources, Lloyd Hines, to stop the clear-cutting project of 94 hectares around the periphery of Kejimukijik Park to preserve the diversity of the area.” View Petition
