In this van Dongen world gone wild it's good to know the good guys can win once in awhile.
This from a Western Canada Wilderness Committee release, today July 29th:
Victory! BC Liberals Back Down from Implementing Working Forest Initiative
Today, the BC Liberals backed down from implementing their proposed Working Forest Initiative. While issuing a press release today (www.gov.bc.ca) claiming they will “implement the Working Forest under existing planning tools” in order to save face, a close look at the release reveals that there will be no legal implementation of the Working Forest - nothing new is being added, ie. there will be no legislation or Cabinet order in council. A conversation following the release of the government’s press release between Ken Wu of the Western Canada Wilderness Committee and George Abbott, Minister of Sustainable Resource Management, confirmed this fact.Hmmmmm.....what are the NeanderCons suddenly so afraid of I wonder?
