"Nanaimo is calling on the provincial government to defer logging of old-growth forests as public opposition mounts to harvesting them."

Friday, April 2, 2021

"“Globally, we’ve crossed critical ecological limits in terms of biodiversity loss, greenhouse gas emissions and conversion of forest lands — critical limits that we are exceeding here in B.C. and part of our current forest practices.” B.C. should defer logging old-growth until it has addressed recommendations in the independent Old Growth Strategic Review, commissioned by the province, he said. The report recommended deferring ­development in old forests, where diverse ecosystems are at risk, until a new forest management strategy is developed." [...] "Just 2.7 per cent of original high productivity old-growth forests remain and of that, 75 per cent is at risk, Geselbracht said." Link So why is the B.C. Provincial government under NDP leader John Horgan so keen on harvesting Old Growth Forests? It doesn't help that the NDP is backed by the United Steelworkers Union, which is based in the US. Talk about foreign intervention in another country's politics.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
