All Too Natural: B.C. Killing Spree in the Woods

How gratifying to see OUR disgusting environmental policies breaking in world media. From renewed seal hunt, to Grizzly cull, to Narwhal quotas, Canada has become a coast to coast to coast international "scumbag of the day." - (lex)

Cathedral Grove 'Park' expansion - a pre-election coup attempt

 

After some running up and down of stairs to get official permission, I (as a representative from Victoria Street Newz), I was finally allowed into the press gallery to hear the exciting news about the Cathedral Grove park expansion.  (I refuse to call it MacMillan Park).   Actually, Ingmar Lee had much better luck getting in than I, even though we both carried our Street Newz Media Cards.  It?s so much fun being a woman.

This parks plan has been in the works for a long time, they said, Gillian has been thinking about this for a long time, it?s a unique opportunity for us all ?

(PEJ Earth Editor's Commentary: I am very much opposed to the existing Breat Bear Rainforest Accord. I think that this unsatisfactory agreement should be shelved and that we should seek a new deal, one that saves a minimum of %50 of the coast forest from Commercial, and so-called, "ecosystem based management" logging. Despite the fact that I believe that the existing Accord is a disaster and a prelude to a similar disaster upcoming in the Canada-wide Boreal Forest Negotiations, I am posting a pro-Accord news report hoping that it may encourage some discussion. dani rubin)
