The Canadian government is divesting from 2.3 million acres of native grasslands in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. These community pastures were created in 1935 under the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act to restore the land following the Dust Bowl of the Great Depression. In Saskatchewan, the provincial government has said that land will be sold at market value. The Public Service Alliance of Canada is sponsoring the Protect the Prairie campaign to prevent the sell off of these community pastures to private interests.
