One-of-a-kind trees being cut

There should have been no government licence given to cut these last-of-a-kind magnificent trees.

To the Editor,

Should have had a good news story for Christmas, but not so this time.

I went to the Nanaimo Port Authority’s Duke Point Terminal to protest the movement of huge logs from the ancient forest of the Walbran Valley. There should have been no government licence given to cut these last-of-a-kind magnificent trees.

This same terminal is also handling the movement of contaminated soil from the mainland to Shawnigan Lake. Think about it. It must be pretty bad stuff as they can’t find a place on the mainland for it, but hey, let’s ship it to the country folk on Vancouver Island and we can also have police protection if needed.

We are being governed by politicians and bureaucrats who have tendencies that are scary. They all have to be turfed out as soon as possible.
