Watch this Global News story, where Forests Minister Doug Donaldson manages to dodge responsibility for BC Timber Sales’ non-compliance in the Nahmint Valley.

Instead of taking ownership, this government is choosing to bury its head in the sand, silence its own Compliance and Enforcement Branch by stripping them of their authority to investigate BCTS, and look the other way while tens of thousands of endangered ancient forests are liquidated in BC every year.

The NDP government needs to do much more than protect 54 of BC’s biggest trees, starting with placing an immediate halt on logging in the Nahmint Valley and other old-growth ‘hotspots’ before BC’s last, largely intact ancient forests are gone for good.
