Oppose plans for logging in the hills above White Lake
- Dave Hails; MFLNRM District Manager-Okanagan Shuswap District
The Shuswap Environmental Action Society is supporting the concerned residents of White Lake who are opposing plans by B.C. Timber Sales to log in the hillsides above their homes.
Of great concern, is the 16-hectare (40 acre) block directly behind the community hall where recreational trails lead up to the White Lake lookout.
We support the residents of White Lake who are very concerned about the BC Timber Sales (BCTS) plans for logging in the hills above White Lake (Blocks KiK7, K1Ka and K1Kb).
We believe that this logging will negatively impact visual quality, property values and recreational values and as well, it could pose unacceptable risks to water quality and terrain stability.
Consequently, we urge the B.C. government to delay approval of the logging plans for at least one year until our community has been adequately consulted regarding any proposed logging in the adjacent hillsides.
