What Does Sustainability Mean for Victoria?

PEJ News - City of Victoria - News Release - Everyone is talking about sustainability, but what does it mean for Victoria? The City of Victoria is embarking on a comprehensive, new initiative focusing on how the municipality can improve its operations and what measures the community must take in the long term to ensure Victoria is sustainable for future generations. The Victoria Sustainability Framework will develop an over-arching vision to guide long-term community planning and City operations in the future. In addition, it will build on existing corporate plans, such as the Official Community Plan and Corporate Strategic Plan, recent consultation work commissioned by the City, and best practices from other jurisdictions.

LOG & FLOG DISPLACES FOREST LAND

Richard Boyce - 
November 16, 2007 - I just walked through the 'not-a-clear-cut' logged area between Qualicum Beach and Coombs. The second growth forest, once considered a buffer from previous logging, has just been leveled. 'Single stem variable retention logging' at its finest. Like sentinels left standing on a bleak and desolate landscape, a few deformed trees remain. A jumble of stumps, exposed root-balls, shattered trunks, branches, and exposed ground cover are all that remain.
