To whom it may concern,
The boreal woodland caribou is a threatened species since the early 2000s. Since then the numbers have declined further. The drop of the population due to ongoing habitat fragmentation and destruction Ontario needs to be stopped. Not only the woodland caribou needs the boreal forest being protected - all species need it, including us humans. It's a precious carbon sink that we need more than ever in our struggle with climate change. I ask you to refrain from exempting the logging industry from Ontario’s Endangered Species at Risk Act until at least 2020. It’s unacceptable to exempt the logging industry from rules that protect the caribou and the boreal forest.
