Last Friday November 20th, a day of the week normally reserved for bad-news announcements, the BC Government quietly announced the handpicked appointees to the Green Energy Advisory Task Force.
Letter issued October 27, 2009 as a final appeal
Today, Manitoba Wildlands and the Wilderness Committee are sending their final appeals of the recent environment license that bisects Grass River Provincial Park with a logging road. The license was issued to Tolko Industries mere months after logging was supposedly banned in Grass River Park. The earlier formal appeals, filed in September, were denied by Conservation Minister Stan Struthers without explanation. The two environmental organizations are appealing to Premier Selinger to review this decision, and decide whether a logging road is a logging development, and whether the woodland caribou in this park deserve protection.
