B.C. Forests 2003: An Appraisal of Government Policies
The B.C. government is radically overhauling the regulations and legislation that control forestry, largely on public lands, in Canada’s Pacific province. And while changes are well underway, the government has not released the draft regulations so that British Columbians can appraise the proposed program. This report by Patricia Marchak and S. Denise Allen examines the planning and discussion papers, proposals and legislation that are available, and makes recommendations regarding the government’s plan.
