Concerns about logging in our region

I’ve been hearing some concerns about logging in our region and wanted you to know what I have been doing on these issues with a post here.

First, I have brought up these concerns directly to the Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development on several occasions and either his office has responded directly to local residents or I have relayed information on his and the ministry’s behalf.

In addition, I have been working with Ymir residents since Spring 2017 to ensure the quality and quantity of their water source. This Fall, I wrote and sent a letter to all Ymir residents with an update on this important issue and have included it below in case anyone hasn’t received it.

I have also personally met with long-time Argenta residents regarding their concern for Argenta face and my office continues to work with them so that the Ministry of Forests and they have an open line of communication and the community has the information they need for their advocacy.

Along with presenting petitions collected by those wanting to ensure good forest practices in Argenta area, I have presented similar petitions to the Legislative Assembly in Victoria for Laird Creek near Balfour.
