Will the Federal Environment Minister stand by her conviction to help save and preserve this most threatened species of grouse ? A Million $ a year, gained in oil revenues , or vs: a bird, doomed by the mighty dollar, forever, to extinction, by humans.
Personally, I very much fear that this creature of our world will very soon join the long list of extinction,as with the Passenger Pigeon, the Do Do bird, the Labrador duck, the Great Auk and countless others that humans have managed to eliminate. I hope to be proven wrong.

What are your thoughts on this, or do you really care.?

Below is a copy of an email I have just sent to the City of Medicine Hat, AB

Dear Medicine Hat Council,

Perhaps your council members could go to this link and read both the article and comment which follows.

Any time you treat nature with as much contempt as this, she will surely come back to bite you.

Perhaps she should! As far as I'm concerned a shameful move by your city!

I hope you'll bring this to the attention of council, for possible inclusion on a meeting agenda!

Thanks!
Have a green day!
