Some advise from Sun Tzo.
"What is of the greatest importance in war is extraordinary speed: One cannot afford to neglect opportunity."
This may not seem like war, but I agree with grncnu.
What is lost without action, can be lost forever. The action of so many to get to where we are is great, let's persist for the benefit of future generations. I have had my opportunity.

I suspect the coalition is taking Sun Tzo's advice.

Back to the strange ignorance about the Temagami region from the mayor of Temagami. Here are set of maps to help the mayor: Hodgson's 101.

your maps made me think brian- thanks!
all the parks that have been established in the area only fit into one map, the wilson canoe routes map of "temagami" these parks all follow canoe routes; some (sturgeon, makobe etc.) as narrow ribbons, some (lady evelyn/smoothwater) made broader to encompass areas of densely intersecting canoe routes. nowhere do we find parks consisting of hinterland alone, i.e. areas not accessible to canoe.
it is therefore rather clear that what is actually being protected (consciously or unconsciously) by the evolving park structure is canoe routes, not necessarily large swathes of hinterland.
now, i personally would like to see the hinterland preserved together with the routes, taking the whole greater temagami region permanently off the forestry/mining track. since i don't see this happening immediately, i fall back on the absolute necessity of preserving the integrity of at least the access routes that allow penetration to the interior.
the exemption of wolf lake from park/fully preserved status is a serious anomaly in the evolving pattern of park/preserved from development lands.
look at the maps.
