Forestry approach is backwards

To the Editor,

when is the plundering and pillaging of our forests going to stop?

Our provincial politicians should take a look and see for themselves the mess these private companies leave behind. Yet nobody can go into the forest to cut firewood from the logs these companies leave to burn.

We have a ministry of forests, but what are they doing besides nothing?

One sees three ships sitting in the harbour loading raw logs. Then our mills in town run one, maybe two shifts because they can’t get any wood. It’s unbelievable.

Are our politicians  going to do something about this or just ignore those facts?

In my opinion the rule should be “no milling in B.C., no rights to log.”

Think about that.
