Statement On The Amazon Forest Fires

Dear Davenport,

Like many Canadians, I too am very troubled by the reports of the 84% increase in forest fires in Brazil this year many of which continue to burn out of control now, and the 278% rise in deforestation over the last year as monitored by Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), and validated by a number of other satellite monitoring systems.

As the Amazon is the planet’s largest tropical rainforest famed for its biodiversity, and one of the largest global carbon sinks – there is understandably widespread concern about what is happening in Brazil.

You can read my statement here.
