Environmental Issues of Canada
Acid rain has impacted the Great Lakes because the lakes are acidic, so organisms living near or in the Great Lakes can’t live. In addition to this, it reduces calcium deposits in the lake faster, so it lowers the levels of calcium in the soil. Over extraction and over use of natural resources in the Canadian Shield has harmed the area because blasting and digging with machines causes the land to get damaged, and that prevents crops from growing. Also, mining causes harmful chemicals to get in the air, and that causes acid rain, so if you mine, there are two problems. Overuse of natural resources can lead to human sickness, and animal death. Timber is a main economic resource that is causing harm to the environment because it is a major cause of forest destruction. It is being cut down to make paper, which destroys forests. Animals lose their homes. Luckily, Canada is passing laws to limit most of these things.
