Ecological Corridor – Maybe Not So Much

It’s reported by the blog Action Pontiac that efforts by the NCC to augment the naturally protected status of Gatineau Park by encouraging surrounding municipalities to add their own protection to certain lands is meeting with resistance.

According to the report the Municipal Council for Pontiac unanimously rejected the idea saying “these corridors will discourage development of the municipality”, and is against anything that “will be a brake on development.”
