Mike Schreiner, on behalf of the Green Party of Ontario and its members and supporters, issued the following statement on the death of Farley Mowat.
“Farley Mowat moved generations of young Canadians to believe that the natural world was a source of wonder and wisdom. Farley changed the way we think about animals, nature, and what it means to be Canadian. Most importantly, Farley changed the way we think about the powers and perils of being human.
Farley’s uncompromising support for the wild continues to inspire me and millions of others around the world.
As a reader and a fellow Green I will miss him; as Canadians we mourn his loss.”
