A video update from Senior Forest Campaigner Jens Wieting July 2023
This September will be the 3-year anniversary of the provincial government’s big old-growth promise to work with Indigenous Nations to create a paradigm shift in forest stewardship.
Here is a quick video recap of the commitments, the lack of follow-through and what’s needed from Premier Eby’s government to step up to the plate.
We are in another climate emergency summer but logging of some of the last old-growth areas big enough to keep temperatures cool, reduce the risk of droughts, flood, fires and landslides continues largely unchanged. Protecting these vital ecosystems is one of the best ways to help keep communities safe and healthy.
It’s not too late to turn things around. Holding the B.C. government accountable on their old-growth commitments is important in charting a better path forward. Together we can make sure future generations know these forests too.
Here are a few ways you can take action for old growth…
Send a letter: This only takes one minute! Let’s flood Ministers’ inboxes calling for accountability on their old-growth promises. The more letters they get before the 3-year anniversary this September the better! Send a letter now.

Upcoming day of action for old-growth: Stay tuned for how to get involved this September in keeping the pressure up on the B.C. government to work with First Nations in implementing the promised paradigm shift for forest stewardship.
