Future Forests Petition

Whereas we believe that:

  • Logging is important to the economy of Port Alberni
  • Sustainable forest management is crucial to ensuring the longevity of the forest industry and forest jobs
  • Old growth is of particular value due to the ecological significance and biodiversity that it supports
  • Tourism from old growth is a large part of our provincial and regional economy

We call on Island Timberlands to:

  • Immediately cease logging the sensitive intact old growth areas of McLaughlin Ridge, Cameron Valley Firebreak, and Mount Horne.
  • Re-instate CSA, or even FSC, certification across all Island Timberlands lands.
  • Engage in ongoing, meaningful consultation with stakeholder groups through formal dialogue and regular, monthly meetings.
