    “Thanks, Treehugger, for your appreciated input. Sadly, Gary Toole, after many pioneering films in the areas of environmentalism and social activism, passed away in 1993. I was the writer on Trouble in the Forest; we tried several times over the years to do sequels, but the money couldn't be found even at the Nature of Things. Now both the NFB and the CBC (the producers and broadcasters in those days) are in such distress that they are no longer able to fulfill their mandate to sufficiently inform Canadians about the issues that concern us so much. Do your best to support and encourage what is left of these institutions, in this terrible era of privatization.” — babyjaguar, 3 Jan 2013

    “@Gary Toole, Well done Sir, informative, thought provoking and saddening. While this film was produced in 1988 (24 years ago) a sequel is due (2012). ” — Treehugger, 31 May 2012
