Message from Tides Canada regarding Great Bear Rainforest agreement

I know of Tides Canada because of its involvement with Jane’s Walk.

As noted at the Jane’s Walk website, “Jane’s Walk is a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform, which supports on-the-ground efforts to create uncommon solutions for the common good. Tides Canada is a national Canadian charity dedicated to a healthy environment, social equity, and economic prosperity.”

The following message is from Tides Canada with regard to the Great Bear Rainforest agreement(s):

Thank you for supporting Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest

An excerpt reads:

This week the world celebrated the final agreements to protect the Great Bear Rainforest. To all of you who supported this work and Tides Canada’s involvement over the years, we applaud you.

After almost two decades of hard work and negotiation, BC First Nations, the Province of BC, logging companies, and environmental organizations have produced the most comprehensive integrated forest management plan in North America, and perhaps on Earth.
