Environmental groups within Ontario have seemingly ramped up their campaigns for the implementation of the SAR guide.

That’s according to Kapuskasing Mayor Alan Spacek, who says that these groups are constantly pushing  Minister McGarry government to implement the guide.

Spacek says environmentalists have really ramped up their campaigns both publicly and privately.

He says there will be a push back from Northern municipalities, but it will be tough to match their resources.

Spacek says due to this push time is running out and if they push through enough it would be disastrous for the north.

Currently, the SAR guide has yet to be finalized and released to the public.
