Tomorrow begins an important time for Canadians. It is the beginning of the annual "Canadian Environment week" This week will run from June 5th-June 11th,although hopefully you will make every week of the year "Environment week:! The Canadian Federal Government Department of the Environment has a news release concerning the week which is entitled, "Canadian Environment Week and Environment Canada's 40thAnniversary " which you can read by clicking on the following link:
Of particular importance is this statement:
"Canadian Environment Week is a call to action to all Canadians to get involved, to adopt a greener lifestyle, to celebrate actions that promote a cleaner environment and inspire others to do the same. Canadian Environment Week is about people, communities and organizations working together to preserve and protect our environment" The theme of this year's week is "Preserving our Forests:Protecting our Future".
Due to the fact that The United Nations declared 2011 to be the International Year of Forests, the Government of Canada has decided to have the 2011 theme of "Canadian Environment week" be
"Preserving our Forests, Protecting our Future."
