No more illegal logging on Crown Land

Fall in Long Lake Provincial Park

Fall in Long lake Provincial Park

The Province has announced stiff fines for illegal logging on Crown Land. View Press release.

I think it’s no coincidence that just under a year ago Martin Willison, a Halifax based naturalist, publicized an illegal cut in Long Lake Provincial Park. It generated widespread condemnation. In March of 2016 charges were laid against three firms.

It’s a fair bet that a selective cut in the same area would not have generated the same reaction from the public.
