These recent images from the Klanawa Valley highlight the brutal impacts of clearcut logging on Vancouver Island.
Until recently, this mountain was one of the last largely intact stands of unprotected old-growth in the valley. Now a sprawling 30-hectare cutblock, a web of roads from Western Forest Products scar the hillside here in Tree Farm Licence 44, north of Nitinat Lake in Ditidaht and Huu-ay-aht territory. This is what ‘talk & log’ looks like.
Speak up! Send a message to John Horgan and the NDP, demanding they take action to protect endangered old-growth forests in BC.
