Dear Premier Doer,

I ask you to grant immediate interim protection to the traditional territories of the Pauingassi and Little Grand Rapids First Nations, as requested by these communities. Interim protections would allow these communities to move forward with their planning for a future World Heritage Site in the region.

These ecologically and culturally important boreal lands and waters sustain indigenous communities and are home to many rare and threatened wildlife species. I am very concerned that if you do not act to confer interim protection on this global treasure, the proposed World Heritage Site may be sacrificed before conservation planning can be completed.

These First Nations have the right to determine the fate of the forest that has sustained them for thousands of years. I urge you to seize this unique opportunity to act in accordance with your government's support for the future World Heritage Site. Please protect these boreal forest lands now, in order to ensure the creation of a World Heritage Site that will enrich your province, Canada and the entire planet.

Sincerely Yours,
