Dear Minister Donaldson, BC’s last old-growth forests continue to be cut at a rate of close to one Stanley Park a day, more than 140,000 hectares per year. I call on you to take immediate, decisive action for endangered old-growth forests in forestry laws and to enact a moratorium on old-growth logging in critical hotspots like the Central Walbran. I urge you to work with First Nations and communities to implement a science-based Old-Growth Protection Act. It must be combined with strong support for First Nations governance and economic activities as well as improved forest management, creating more jobs and less damage per cubic metre of wood. Your government has promised to make BC’s forests a priority. The climate crisis requires immediate steps to keep carbon stored in forests and protect communities from worsening climate impacts like droughts and flooding. I am calling on you now to act in support of BC’s globally rare, endangered old-growth forests and the people who depend on them. Thank you.
