We welcome the opportunity to participate in this exercise the Old Growth Strategic Review.
The review is long overdue, given the last extensive review and development of an Old Growth Strategy was in 1992. Over the past four decades, the BC Wildlife Federation (BCWF) has participated in many forestry related reviews starting with the Pearce Commission in the 1970’s.
Unfortunately for BC’s forests, little positive has resulted and many of the predictions regarding timber supply, old growth liquidation, fish and wildlife impacts, etc. are evident today. We sincerely hope and trust this will not just be another exercise in ‘talking while they continue logging as usual.’
