Quebec Yes, Maine No
In mid April, the Quebec government released draft legislation to implement Plan Nord, a sustainable development initiative for the province’s 460,000-square-mile northern forest region. The area is home to a significant portion of the Canadian boreal, the Earth’s largest intact forest ecosystem and its largest storehouse of carbon. The legislation would create the single largest land conservation plan in history.
