To leaders of Nova Scotia NDP, Green Party, Conservative Party,
I recently posed this question to the candidates for leadership of the NS Liberal Party:
How do you plan to align Nova Scotia with the federal Liberal Government’s commitment to 30% Protected Area by 2030?
Related background material is given on this post on nsforestnotes.ca, a blog/website about forests and forestry in NS that I have been maintaining since June 2016 (it currently has 799 subscribers): A question to the Nova Scotia Liberal Leadership Candidates: How do you plan to align Nova Scotia with the federal Liberal Government’s commitment to 30% Protected Area by 2030? 2Jan 2021
I am posting the responses from the Liberal Candidates:

Regardless of which party is in power in Ottawa, there would be international expectations for Canada to make these sorts of commitments, as outlined in that post.
I and, I think, readers of nsforestnotes.ca would be be very interested in your response to the same question, allowing for a change in government in Ottawa that might not adhere to the same commitments, i.e., where do you/your party stand on how NS should respond to calls for 30% Protected Area by 2030?
I would likewise post any responses on nsforestnotes.ca
I look forward to your responses.
