High levels of acid rain can kill trees, kill fish, and pollute lakes. Southern Canada has had the highest amount of acid precepitation. When mining with the dynamite can ruin the enviorment and can be damaged by ming with heavy machinery. Also using the heavy machinery can release chemicals into the atmophere that creates acid rain. Solutions to the predicament are to reduce the amount of mining in the canadian sheild and to reduce the amount of raw material exports, but to focus on to manufacturing cars and such. The timber industry is making citizens concerned taht it is destroying the forest. Most tree cutting industries leave huge tree gaps (clear-cutting). solutions the goverment and timber industry are managing the use of the forest.
