An open letter to Iain Rankin, former Minister of the department of Lands and Forestry, now running for the leadership of the Nova Scotia Liberal party. “Mr. Rankin, your pledges need to be trustworthy if you want them to translate into votes, and how are voters to trust you with a record like that? More needs to be done to restore credibility, and clearly, much more needs to be done towards a sustainable future in this province,” writes Shanni Bale.

Press release: Members of Stop Spraying and Clear-Cutting Nova Scotia (SSCCNS) will be attending the student-led Climate Strike on Friday, September 25, 2020. On this day of global climate action, SSCCNS would like to highlight the vital role that healthy forests play in fighting climate change. Science shows that forests stabilize our climate by absorbing and storing carbon, which prevents that carbon from further warming our atmosphere. This is a significant consideration in Nova Scotia, where forests cover 75% of our province.
