On January 28, 2016, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) published a report containing a number of inaccurate statements regarding Resolute. The report wrongly claims that significant forestlands, beyond the extensive areas already protected, could be set aside for protection with no impact on jobs and communities.

We’ve pointed out just a few of the inaccuracies contained in the CPAWS press release.
