The message includes a PDF document listing “proposed” cuts on Crown lands by County.

‘Not sure why they can’t also post those PDFs on their website. I should re-word that: ‘Not sure why they do not want to post those PDFs on their website.

If you are concerned about ongoing clearcuts/even-aged management (most of the partial cuts are two stage clearcuts performed as part of even-aged management) on the Peoples’ Lands, I suggest (a) subscribe to these notifications* (even if there is a very slim chance that you can do anything about the proposed cuts, subscribing at least indicates public interest); (b) write the Premier and ask him to get on with changing the top bureaucrats in charge of forest management at NSDNR/Lands and Forests to ones that are capable and fully willing to implement the recommendations from the Independent Review.
