At the Cutting Edge: The Crisis in Canada's Forests
|Is Canada's forestry on the brink of collapse? World-renowned
environmental activist Elizabeth May thinks it is, and in this exhaustively
researched and controversial book tells us why.
In her province-by-province analysis, the author reveals that both provincial and federal governments have been practising "voodoo forestry". They provide the public with overly optimistic projections for growth following the decimation of the natural forest. At the Cutting Edge foresees the coming of an age when Canada moves from being a world leader in the supply of forest products to a third-tier provider forced to clear-cut and decimate its environment to maintain a place in the global forest industry.
Written by Elizabeth May. Published by Key Porter Books Ltd., 1998.
