From the Star-Phoenix: Pasture patron says provincial package is just too costly.
“McCreary said the Community Pasture Patrons Association of Saskatchewan is “going out meeting pasture by pasture.” They have spoken with 27 of the 60 pastures with 25 of those joining the association. The speakers all said the community pastures serve the entire province preserving important grassland ecosystems and endangered species.
McCreary said there needs to be more consultation and analysis before any pastures are sold or leased.
‘It is really important to slow this down and to have discussions and make sure we know that change is for a purpose,’ he said.”
From Planet S Magazine: Public Grasslands Could Soon Be Private.
““The ship is sailing and there’s no direction,” said Ian McCreary of the Community Pasture Patron’s Association at a recent public forum in Saskatoon, which was organized by Public Pastures – Public Interest, a non-profit group that wants to conserve public grasslands.”
