Plans to log an 11.7-hectare site near residential areas of ts’ukw’um (Wilson Creek) are in the works. Sunshine Coast Community Forest (SCCF) has called for industry bids for harvesting of cutblock EW24… Along with harvesting of 6,300 cubic metres of timber, the work to be completed includes activation of 600 metres of road in the Husdon Creek area. Operations Manager for SCCF, Warren Hansen told Coast Reporter that he plans to apply to the Ministry of Forests for a cutting permit for the work as soon as endorsement of that step in the process is received from shíshálh Nation council. …On March 27, local forest conservation group Elphinstone Logging Focus issued a press release opposing the plan to log in the cutblock. The group is copying its correspondence related to the block to the province’s Forest Practices Board to show that it has attempted to resolve issues of concern with SCCF.
