Canada is blessed with an abundance of land, oceans and lakes. In contrast to other countries, especially those with developing economies, Canada's environment issues may seem trifling. The vast majority of Canadians enjoy fresh air and water. Yet are we living beyond our means, extracting more from our environment than is sustainable? What is the price of our prosperity on nature? What can we do better today to ensure future generations of Canadians have a healthy environment? As Canadians, it is our environment. It is our responsibility to steward and our responsibility to meet today's challenges.
