This foreman at Stone Pacific was very knowledgeable and level-headed. His thoughts were:

  1. Carmanah and Walbran parks contained enough local productive old growth.
  2. We can’t shift to a second-growth industry overnight.
  3. If the blockade movement wanted to be ‘pro-old-growth and not ‘anti-logger’ we need to let them work when they aren’t building roads into old growth.
  4. We should allow road crews to finish creating drainage to mitigate damage to stream beds.

Because Stone Pacific was not constructing roads into old-growth we let them go to work.

On another note, cut block 888 will spell the end of Camper Creek’s ancient ecosystem. It was a treasure to experience this unique ecosystem before it is gone.
