Following the Coulombe Commission’s release of its discussion document for public round table meetings, five conservation groups (the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Greenpeace, the Regroupement national des conseils de l’environnement du Qubec, l’Union qubcoise pour la conservation de la nature and World Wildlife Fund Canada), invited to participate in these meetings, expressed their concern about some of the ideas presented.
Even though the draft document includes interesting ideas for improving the protection as well as the management of Quebec’s public forests, the groups say they will address questions on specific areas on the subjects of parks and protected areas, independent environmental assessment, ecosystem-based management, intensive forest management, forest certification and forest management planning.
