Become a friend of woodlot group
The Editor, During the last week I have attended two meetings of disparate groups: The Glengarry Historical Society and the Ontario Woodlot Association.
The significant concern expressed by both audiences was the disappearance woodlots, wetlands and habitats in Glengarry and adjacent counties.
Over the last six years there have been many articles and letters from your readers on this topic. I sense a frustration in the community that no one is prepared to listen to its concerns.
Your readers should be aware that there is an advocacy group that would be happy to hear from them, and further, to take their issues to every level of government; municipal, provincial and federal. The arboreal concerns of Glengarry residents are mirrored in all areas of Ontario.
Whether you are a woodlot owner or an apartment dweller, you can “Become a Friend” of the Ontario Woodlot Association. Visit www.ontariowoodlot.com and select “Support Us.” You will find how you can help the OWA, and they in turn can take your message to the various government bodies upon which they are represented.
