Mushroom pickers win temporary injunction against logging in Sunshine Coast forest
Hans Penner, Laurie Annette Bloom and Ross Muirhead, three anti-logging activists with a history of illegal blockades against forestry operations on the Sunshine Coast] have secured a temporary halt on logging plans for a favourite plot of forest, but whether they’ll have a chance to make that permanent depends on their ability to pay up to $250,000 in potential damages. Last week, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Lisa Warren extended a temporary injunction against logging in the so-called Chanterelle Forest, a section of the Sunshine Coast Community Forest known in the local community for its namesake fungi. …The activists, founders of Elphinstone Logging Focus, are asking for a judicial review of the forests ministry’s decision to grant a cutting permit for the 25.3 hectares of Crown land known as EW28.
