Focus Magazine Victoria

Most BC residents live in big cities,seemingly far removed from our forests. Focus Magazine of Victoria is to be congratulated for its in depth article on BC Forests entitled the "Big Burn" by Briony Penn.

It deals with privatization of our forests. Just click on the title to go to the article.

  1. Let's be honest here. This was co-written by Government employees in order to protect their jobs. Is it really about public lands or is it about GEU support for an NDP Government?
    It's easy to judge and criticize industry when one is a career bureaucrat who only ever had to work with one minute piece of the forestry puzzle. Talk to the ABCFP to see if they support reliance on professionals (industry, consultants, government) because this article flies in the face of what they are trying to accomplish.
    Forestry is a lot more complicated today than it was 100 years ago. What was right for the province and the people 100 years ago, may not be right today.
