In a personal communication with a savelanteville.com member it was revealed that the Woodlot license holder plans to cut 3 years worth of trees or 75 logging trucks worth of trees sometime in the next month or so.
The proposal supported by council and Nanaimo Area Land Trust to protect a portion of the forest from logging has been rejected without a credible explanation.
Why would the Ministry and Minister Donaldson reject a compromise plan that the majority of citizens support with a plan in place to compensate the woodlot license holder?
Hopefully a meeting can be called with the Ministry to discuss and come up with a solution that also represents the interests of our community.
Write the Minister and District Manager to voice your displeasure with the dismissal of the proposal and ask them to reconsider
