Liberal Plan for Canada

"The Brundtland Commission identified the protection of species and ecosystems as a prerequisite to sustainable development. In response, the House of Commons unanimously endorsed the goal of working cooperatively with provincial and territorial governments to protect in its natural state a representative sample of each of the country's natural regions, amounting to at least 12 percent of Canada. A Liberal government will work with the provinces, the territories, and Aboriginal peoples towards this goal. We will maintain the commitment to complete the National Parks System by 2000."

(This quote provided as an indication of commitments to protected areas and national parks, made during l993 federal election.
