MONTREAL, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - On Sept. 19, 2013, the government of
Quebec announced that it was reconvening the Partners Table, which
brings together leaders from aboriginal communities, environmental
organizations, industry, and regional representatives to find
innovative ways to balance economic development and environmental
protection in Northern Quebec. This important process led to adoption
in 2010 of the 50/50 sustainable development policy in a region of
Quebec that is twice the size of Texas.
The new Parti Quebecois government has announced that it will resume the
Partners Table process Oct. 11, 2013. Nature Quebec and the Conseil
Régional de l'Environnement de la Côte-Nord have been appointed to
represent concerns related to protected areas, sustainable development,
and the environment.
Pew joins the Canadian Boreal Initiative and the Society for Nature and
Parks in congratulating Christian Simard of Nature Quebec and Sébastien
Caron of the Conseil Régional de l'Environnement de la Côte-Nord for
their appointment to the Partners Table.
