RLB and the protection of the mountain summits

Over the last year, Renaissance Brome Lake has become increasingly concerned about the need to protect mountain summits, especially Foster, Sutton, Bromont and Shefford mountains among others. At the last annual meeting (AGM), the board of directors of Renaissance Brome Lake therefore proposes the following resolution which was unanimously adopted.

 

“Whereas mountain summits:

− play an essential role in the quality of our environment;

− constitute vital areas for refilling our water tables;

− are made up of major forest tracts where fauna and flora are frequently compromised by urbanization;

− represent a totality of countrysides and exceptional sites for tourism and the practice of outdoor activities;

− are frequently home to threatened species or the sites for rare or exceptional plants;

− are inadequately or badly protected by the regulations in place;

 It is hereby proposed to request to the Minister of Sustainable Development, the Environment, Wildlife and Parks (Ministre du développement durable, de l’environnement, de la faune et des parcs) to put in place appropriate measures to better protect mountain summits.”

The letter sent (in french) to the Minister of développement durable, de l’environnement, de la faune et des parcs (MDDEFP).
