A save-Wolf Lake petition tops 20,000 signatures. Avaaz.org, the petition sponsor, hopes for 30,000.
The largest remaining old-growth red pine forest in the world is threatened by mining. Earlier this year, Ontario tried to renege on a decade-old promise to turn it into a park.

A year ago today Daniel Trask went missing in Temagami and the uncertainty hangs like a dark cloud over his family.
"It's a very emotional time for us," wrote Daniel's mother Maureen in an email. "No one could have prepared us for this day."
"First the fall search, then spring, then summer, then fall again, and still, no signs of Daniel, other than his winter clothing being found in May."
"The Ottertooth community and many others came into our lives to help us during this time, been there for our ups and downs, and provided valuable information and resources. We are very grateful for all the support and many new friends we have found."
The Ottertooth forum contains regular updates on the search. Conor Mihell wrote a piece for the fall edition of Explore magazine.
