Motion for an Urban Forest Strategy

The Green Infrastructure Ontario Coalition (GIO) applauds Irene Mathyssen (NDP, London—Fanshawe) and the private members’ motion she introduced to Canada's Parliament calling on our national government to establish an Urban Forest Strategy. Federal movement in this direction is great for our urban environments, and “collaboration between all levels of government, the private sector, individual property owners and NGOs in preserving, promoting and protecting Canadian urban forests” is a key component of a strategy to sustain and enhance our urban forest canopy cover.
