Protect boreal forest: paddler Adventurer delivers message to legislature

Jay Morrison paddles on the Assiniboine River to the Manitoba Legislative Building to meet Conservation Minister Stan Struthers.
JAY Morrison paddled 3,000 kilometres through heat and storms to deliver a paddle to the Manitoba legislature yesterday.
The 57-year-old member of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAW) put his canoe-kayak hybrid in the Gulf Of St. Lawrence on April 9, and arrived in Winnipeg — somewhat tanned — yesterday to remind the Conservation Minister Stan Struthers to protect 82,000 square kilometres of boreal forest (an area larger than Nova Scotia) east of Lake Winnipeg.
