Globe and Mail Editorial calls on all Premiers to meet or exceed McGuinty's boreal protection announcement

Check out this editorial in the Globe and Mail yesterday. It challenges the premiers of the other provinces and territories to 'match or even outdo' Premier McGuinty's announcement that Ontario will protect at least half of its Northern Boreal region. Is this the start of a new relationship between Canada and its wilderness?

Also, in Ontario's announcement today that it was joining the Western Climate Initiative, the boreal protection plan was listed as one of three major actions that Ontario is taking on climate change along with investment in public transit and partnering with Quebec to develop a cap and trade system.
