A CONVERSATION WITH STONE PACIFIC AT CAMPER CREEK: Not the ememy.
This foreman at Stone Pacific was very knowledgeable and level-headed. His thoughts were:
- Carmanah and Walbran parks contained enough local productive old growth.
- We can’t shift to a second-growth industry overnight.
- 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.
- 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.
