PPWC Statement on Old-Growth Logging on Vancouver Island

“The Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC) urges the Government of British Columbia to protect the remaining old-growth rainforest on Vancouver Island. Additionally, the PPWC urges forestry companies harvesting on Vancouver Island to transition to second-growth logging.

The temperate old-growth rainforest found on Vancouver Island is among the rarest ecosystems on the planet – covering less than 0.5 percent of the Earth’s surface. These forests have been lived in and utilized by First Nations for centuries and hold significant cultural values for these Nations. These ecosystems support a diversity of economic activities: forestry, tourism, and wild salmon fisheries to name a few.

This past Saturday approximately 200 paddlers took to the water in the Saanich Inlet to let Steelhead LNG know there is strong opposition to their Malahat LNG proposal and that the community wants to keep the inlet LNG Free!

Thank you to all the paddlers that answered our call! It was an amazing afternoon! It is very likely there will be another "Paddle" planned for the near future!

Paddlers had an incredible welcome from W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations leaders and then headed out on the water to build the local community and enjoy the Saanich Inlet.

View and share our Facebook Live videos on the Saanich Inlet Network Facebook Group.
