Logging to Supply Timber or Water?

June 28, 2013

In his April 2013 Wild Lands Advocate article, Nigel Douglas reviews scientific research conducted in the Kananaskis valley that identified peak streamflow increases associated with the extent of logging. In this season of severe southern Alberta floods, the water resource and stream ecology issues discussed in this article should receive careful consideration before the Alberta government promotes further clear cut logging in our sensitive Eastern slopes.

No public hearings are scheduled. Only one Alberta organization, the Alberta Wilderness Association, is independent enough that it continues championing public land and the people's right of access to it. So people must speak individually, as they have so many times before, directly to the premier, the minister of Sustainable Resource Development and their MLA, and remind them of what public land means to all of us, that none of it is surplus to our needs, that we do not want it sold.
