Thanks for sharing this information. If you'd like to add your voice, there is a petition circulating

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/protect-our-peat-keep-peat-mining-out-of/

or you can got to the Wilderness Committee's page to submit a letter directly to government:

Keep and eye on CBC TV tomorrow. I'm taking them out to the area in the morning.

Thanks,
Heather
