Radio Interview - Joe Foy on the impending threat of logging at the Argenta Face

Tuesday, April 26, 2022

This is a radio interview with Joe Foy - longtime activist with the Wilderness Committee. Last year he posted a film on YouTube about the forest on the Argenta Face. He says the current crisis over logging at Argenta is all part of the province’s failure to deal honestly and respectfully with the issue of old-growth forest protection. This region is within the unceded territory of the Ktunaxa, Secwepemc, Sinixt and Sylix Nations.
