News coverage of yesterday’s press conference

28 Mar

From the Leader-Post:  “A growing number of organizations are lining up to oppose the provincial government’s plan to sell off all or part of the 1.6 million acres of community pastures that were transferred back to the province by the federal government in last year’s budget.

And the group organizing that opposition, Public Pastures-Public Interest (PPPI), has come up with six principles to guide the management of the 62 federally managed pastures, including continued public ownership, livestock grazing under professional management, and preservation of what has been called ‘the largest blocks of native grassland’ in the country.”

From Canadian Press, courtesy of CKRM: “Almost 20 environmental and conservation groups in Saskatchewan want community pastures that used to be overseen by the federal government to remain under public control.” This article was also picked up by Global News under a different headline.

From Radio-Canada: “Un groupe de citoyens demande au gouvernement de la Saskatchewan de garder les pâturages communautaires dans le domaine public.”
