“We are delighted the plans have been approved through legislation,” said Ron Thiessen, executive director of the Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society’s Manitoba chapter. “The thousands of square kilometers of wild lands and waters that are now protected in their natural state is a victory for local communities, all Manitobans, and threatened species such as woodland caribou.”

CPAWS is at the forefront of inspiring tens of thousands of Manitobans to officially support large-scale conservation and sustainable communities on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.
