NAN continues to oppose Bill 151

Nishnawbe Aski Nation is calling for community-managed forests in response to Bill 151 being sent for third reading. “There must be a new forest tenure model whereby communities, and not industry or government, become the managers of the forest and have the final say,” said Grand Chief Stan Beardy. “First Nations must have an opportunity to be part of economic development, including benefits that may derive from forestry practices, in order to ensure long-term sustainability for generations to come.”
