For the Love of New Brunswick

Climate change is threatening the things we love doing in New Brunswick. Together, we can make a difference—but it has to be a real difference.

The good news: there are solutions. We can fix the pollution and behaviours driving climate change. And we’ll end up with safer, healthier communities for everyone.

Explore our climate solutions hub, For the Love of New Brunswick, for ideas on how citizens and governments can do their part, for information on how and why climate change is happening, and to see our #LoveNB video series featuring heart-warming stories from New Brunswickers about the activities we love that are under threat from the effects of climate change.

Spraying in New Brunswick

Forestry companies spray clearcut areas with herbicides to kill hardwoods and vegetation that compete with the spruce, fir and pine they grow in plantations.

The Conservation Council has long advocated that the province stop the old-fashioned, citizen-funded practice of spraying the forest. Quebec banned the spraying of its public forest more than 15 years ago. Glyphosate, the main active ingredient in most herbicides used in Crown forest operations in New Brunswick, was listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s cancer research agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2015.
