After these victories, McCrory expanded her work across Canada. As coordinator of the British Columbia Environmental Network from 1989 to 1990, she organized environmental activists working on issues such as mining in provincial parks and forestry. In 1990 she travelled across the country documenting the pulp and paper industry’s plans to double logging in Canada. McCrory founded Canada’s Future Forest Alliance, an umbrella organization she headed that represents one million Canadians concerned about the future of country’s boreal forests. The alliance spans a broad cross-section of groups, including native communities and labor unions.
Beginning in 1992, McCrory took her “Brazil of the North” campaign to Brazil, Japan and other countries. In the process, she became involved with the formation of the Taiga Rescue Network, a coordinated international effort to protect the boreal forests of the world.
She also turned her attention closer to home, as logging threats increased in and around her hometown of New Denver, British Columbia. Specialists have contended that the Perry Ridge and Denver Flats areas should not be logged due to risks of slope failure, debris torrents and contamination of drinking water. McCrory had been at the forefront of citizen blockades and efforts to publicize the campaign against logging in this area.
