The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

More than 500 pro­test­ers urg­ing the pro­tec­tion of Utah’s Bears Ears Na­tional Mon­u­ment demon­strated in Salt Lake City where U.S. In­te­rior Sec­re­tary Ryan Zinke met with tribal lead­ers. He’s as­sess­ing whether 3.2 million acres of the state’s red rock re­gion should re­main na­tional mon­u­ments or have bor­ders scaled down. An ex­ec­u­tive or­der signed last month by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump called for a re­view of 27 na­tional mon­u­ments es­tab­lished by sev­eral for­mer pres­i­dents.
