Unlike most Canadian cities, the urban core of Halifax is surrounded not by farms or endless burbs but by forested and coastal landscapes. Even within 30 kilometres of downtown Halifax, where approximately three-quarters of the population resides, developed areas are interspersed with substantive wild spaces. In this article, David Patriquin highlights Halifax’s wild spaces and discusses some of what has to be done to preserve their wildness. See Article in Chronicle Herald.
