Former Environment Commissioner elected Earthroots board chairApr 18, 2016
“Earthroots has a long record of standing up for wilderness and fighting to protect our biodiversity. Their efforts have never been more needed in these trying times and I'm proud to contribute and build on all they have achieved,” Miller said.
“The recent threatened regressive wolf management policy which was withdrawn due to the efforts of Earthroots and others shows how critical it is support and maintain activist environmental NGOs like Earthroots” the new chair said. Miller left the Commissioner’s post in 2015 after 15 years as the Legislature’s independent environmental watchdog.
Also, recently elected to the Earthroots board of directors are Rosseau eco-entrepreneur and ethicist Andrea Wilson who was elected vice-chair, Toronto environmental lawyer John Willms, and Toronto environmental consultant David Oved.
The new directors join Earthroots co-founder Hap Wilson and Greenpeace forest campaigner Catharine Grant on the board, and the staff headed by Amber Ellis, executive director.
Earthroots wishes to thank its former chair, Clayton Ruby, for his nearly 20 years of service on our board.
