Alas, another attempt at skirting around the legal parameters of the protected wilderness of our amazing natural old growth forests. We must act to avert yet another tragic invasion by the logging industry. Wake up Canada, wake up Christy Clark! I personally support this valid campaign to save and protect ancient pristine old growth forest expanses of BC. While conservation solutions are being actively pursued by environmental organizations all logging development in said area must be halted by a responsible government.
I wrote this email to the BC premier and sent it through the Wilderness Committee website action page:
Dear Christy Clark,
I say “NO” to logging on Flores Island!! Clayoquot Sound is world-renowned for its globally rare expanse of ancient temperate rainforest. It is also known as a place where the Central Region Chiefs of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations — Hesquiaht, Ahousaht, Tla-o-qui-aht, Ucluelet and Toquaht — have worked with environmental groups to protect and conserve the ancient forests within First Nations’ traditional territories.
However, the intact valleys of Clayoquot Sound, have still not been protected in provincial law and are once again in danger of being logged by the logging company Iisaak Forest Resources, who are currently planning logging in an intact area of pristine ancient forests on Flores Island.
Therefore, please do not permit new helicopter log-drop zones off Flores Island and do not issue any more road permits or cut permits for any of Clayoquot Sound’s intact areas. I urge you to support conservation solutions currently being pursued by environmental organizations and local First Nations.
Check out this important campaign at Wilderness Committee and join in by writing to the Premier too.
Today’s “stone” is Day 42 as old as old, ancient, tall-standing, life-rich, chaotic green
