Op-Ed: Urban canopy is a civic-election priority

It’s not often that environmental groups can report good news. More often, it’s a litany of frustration, complaint and anxiety over government inaction. And while Trees Please Winnipeg can’t yet declare total victory, it can boast of a major first stage win in our fight to save and expand our urban canopy.

Why? Because thanks to the efforts of community groups and a dedicated team of committee members, virtually every mayoral and council candidate in the 2022 municipal election has signed the Trees Please Pledge.

A new op-ed by our coalition Interim Chair, Erna Buffie!
