Archives in Canada and Quebec - British ARA expresses 'deep concern'

Archives in Canada and Quebec - ARA expresses 'deep concern' After liasing with colleagues in Canada, The ARA has written to the Minister responsible for ‘Canadian Heritage and Official Languages’ to express the ARA’s ‘deep concern’ at the elimination of the National Archival Development Program and the impact this will have on archives across Canada and Quebec. Chair Martin Taylor wrote: 'The excellent work of the NADP is known around the world. It is effective and has delivered an excellent return on investment for the people of Canada. The loss of its expertise and its funding will be devastating to all who use, study or enjoy the priceless historical sources which the NADP has protected and made available'.

Mallett's Maple Pepper Carries On a Long Tradition

A natural sugar made by concentrating maple tree sap into a solid maple sugar block, then grinding into small crystals. Maple sugar was the preferred form of maple by First Nations/Native American peoples as the sugar could easily be transported and lasted a long time. It is called ziinzibaakwad by the Anishinaabeg.[6] [7] Blessing of the Bay, the second ocean-going merchant ship built in the English colonies, carried maple sugar from the Massachusetts Bay Colony to New Amsterdam as early as 1631.

Made from natural Maple trees maple sugar can now be found in products such as Mallett's Maple Pepper. visit Mallett's Maple Pepper Website

  • Canada and The United States are the only two maple syrup producing countries in the world. Canada accounts for about 85 percent of the world’s production of maple syrup.

  • The four major species of maples are the sugar maple, red maple, silver maple and the ash leafed maple. The sugar maple (Acer saccharum) is the major specie for sugar production.

  • Maple sugar is about twice as sweet as standard granulated sugar.

  • It takes around 40 to 50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup.

  • The maple season lasts only about 4 to 6 weeks of the year.

  • Usually maple trees are not tapped until they are at least 40 years old and 10-12 inches in diameter. As the tree's diameter increases, more taps can be added (up to a maximum of four taps).

  • When done properly, tapping does no permanent damage to the tree. Some maple trees have been tapped for over two hundred and fifty years!

  • Pure maple sugar is a 100% natural product, no additives are allowed.

  • It takes one gallon of syrup to produce eight pounds of sugar.

  • 'Sinzibukwud' is the Algonquin (a North American Indian tribe) word for maple syrup, meaning literally 'drawn from wood'.

Nova Scotia Action Plan for Natural Resources


Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (August, 2011). From Strategy to Action, An Action Plan
for the Path We Share, A Natural Resources Strategy for Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Department of Natural

From Strategy to Action
" Sustainability, Diversity, Collaboration, Transparency and Informed Decision Making. These are the values that guide our 10-year natural resources strategy. The strategy marks a departure from traditional natural resource management and is inspired by a vision of a sustainable and prosperous future—a vision described to us by Nova Scotians and reflected in jobsHere, the economic plan for Nova Scotia. As the foundation for the government’s extensive agenda of change, the principles inherent in that economic plan give direction to this strategy and the actions that flow from it. "
Thu, Aug 18 
There’s no positive change in sight for Nova Scotia’s forests. While the just-released Natural Resources Strategy for 2011-2020 contains positive language about collaboration and new directions, the Nova Scotia government has failed to deliver on the challenging issues of reducing clearcutting and eliminating whole-tree harvesting.

The government’s solution to clearcutting, apparently, is to define clearcutting so narrowly that it nearly no longer exists. In fact, under the government’s narrow definition of a clearcut, I would hazard the 50 per cent goal has already been reached. As long as a few scattered trees are left standing on the harvest site, then presto, a clearcut is no longer a clearcut. The strategy contains no guidance or action for a real shift to uneven-aged harvesting methods.

Reducing clearcutting by a simple change of definition is hardly original. The forestry industry has used this smoke-and-mirrors method for years to try to convince the gullible that leaving behind a smattering of trees means that a clearcut is no longer a clearcut. Our government seems to have caught on to the practice.

And what of the government’s consistent promise to eliminate whole-tree harvesting? Gone. Now the government is committing to develop, sometime over the next six months, rules for whole-tree harvesting.

What does the strategy offer? One promise has been kept — to eliminate the $600,000 in public funding for herbicide treatments. Unfortunately, the language used in the strategy on this issue is archaic, referring to hardwood trees targeted by herbicides as nothing more than "weeds" that can still be removed with the help of other publicly funded programs.
What else? After more than three years of public consultation, expert panel reports and stakeholder meetings, the government has concluded that collaboration with forest stakeholders and commitment to good governance should be priorities at the Department of Natural Resources.

All in all, the government’s new 10-year strategy is high on process, but hollow on meaningful action: It’s a disappointment and a wasted opportunity to listen to Nova Scotians’ call for meaningful change. As the government talks about collaboration and good governance, Nova Scotia’s forests will continue to be clearcut, and whole-tree harvesting will increasingly ravage Nova Scotia’s landscape.

The Path We Share, A Natural Resources Strategy for Nova Scotia 2011-2020

Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (August, 2011). The Path We Share, A Natural Resources Strategy for Nova Scotia 2011-2020, Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources.

Here it is at last - 8 months late - but is it worth the wait?

" The natural resources of the province belong to all Nova Scotians, and all share the responsibility of ensuring the survival and good health of those resources for future generations. The government is presenting this strategy, but its fate is in the hands of thousands of others – owners of large and small tracts of land, industry leaders, communities, environmental groups, municipal leaders, the Mi’kmaq, the next generation of political leaders, teachers, researchers, and academics. They and many other Nova Scotians will play a vital role, including the making of decisions that determine the future of woodlots, mining ventures, the living environment, parks, and protected land.
