Paper topos resuscitated

News reports and Maps For Canadians are celebrating the federal government's decision to cancel the decision to cancel printing paper topographical maps. Wonders will never cease.

Federal Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn made the decision on October 11. Apparently the order to end printing was made under the previous Liberal government and Lunn was made aware of the decision and its implications as a result of public protests.

Parks and rec meetings head for Toronto, Ottawa

Writers of the upcoming parks-and-recreation plan will meet with concerned users in Toronto and Ottawa next month.

The Ministry of Natural Resources is finalizing an integrated management plan (TIP) for parks, conservation reserves and Crown-land recreation in the Temagami land-use-plan district.

The plan will cover everything from ATVs in parks and on portages, to camping fees on Crown land, to the intended logging-road crossing of the Pinetorch Conservation Reserve (at the end of the Red Squirrel Road).

Nastawgan Network sees these issues as the tip of the iceberg of the "fracturing of the Temagami backcountry and a proliferation of incompatible land use activities."

The meeting is sponsored by Nastawgan Network, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) and Earthroots
