Whereas: Burns Bog in Delta, British Columbia is recognised as having local, national and global ecological significance as a raised bog ecosystem containing several nationally and provincially
listed species at risk;
and whereas: Burns Bog has historical cultural significance to the First Nations of the region;
and whereas: the Governments of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, the Metro Vancouver Regional District and the Corporation of Delta entered into a covenant to restore the raised
bog ecosystem and maintain its integrity, offering opportunities for education/interpretation, sustainable recreation and scientific research.
