Native land-care tips from Down Under

Of all the things Canada imports from Australia, the most valuable might turn out to be an idea.

A delegation of Australian Indigenous Rangers arrived in Vancouver on the weekend for a tour that will take them to Yellowknife and Winnipeg before ending in Ottawa in a week.

The group, organized by the Pew Environment Group, is here to talk to native leaders, politicians and the public about a remarkable program that
engages native people in environmental management. The Indigenous Rangers project could prove to be a model for how Canada can involve first nations in the management of land for the benefit of all Canadians.
