Thanks Cher for posting the CTV News story. I do believe that biodiversity loss is just as much a threat to humankind as climate change. The article by the end mentioned "the Conservative government would shift legislative protections from ecosystems and habitats to specific species" and that ""Something like 80 per cent of our endangered freshwater species will not be covered any more". Sad to hear but the same thing is happening here in the US with the GOP controlled House (in the name of reducing the debt) slashing funds and lessening protections for biodiversity. Read and noted.

Thank you for posting. I have recently left my job in the city to work on an organic farm and forest restoration project to put my thoughts and words into action. We could use environmental scientists lobbying to help change laws in favor of our ecosystem. Lets stand together and make the government work for us the way our forefathers who wrote the constitute intended it to be.
