The B.C. government has moved to cut off debate on two major bills to remake B.C.’s forest industry, forcing them to a final vote as the fall session of the legislature ends this week.

“Today’s announcement is deeply concerning for the future health of the B.C. economy and will have direct and unintended consequences for communities across B.C., from Campbell River to Surrey, businesses big and small and thousands of forestry-related workers across the province,” D’Avignon said.

“The result of this has been a non-transparent process based on questionable science and assumptions. It seems designed to put the industry into chaos, and many jobs and communities at risk,” he said.

The City of Terrace has joined the Northwest Loggers Association (NLA) in asking the province to rethink its old-growth deferral plan.

B.C. plants a mix of native tree species, including lodgepole pine, interior spruce, western red cedar, Douglas fir and Larch. This helps ensure future forests are climate-adaptable, resilient and diverse.

British Columbia planted just over 301 million trees in 2021, a record 304 million in 2020, 258 million in 2019 and 255 million in 2018. More than 1.1 billion trees have been planted since 2018.

"The McBride Community Forest has been hit especially hard by the outlined deferrals. McBride Community Forest Manager Ray Thiessen says they [deferrals] affect roughly 40 per cent of their available timber supply, and possibly more, as they don’t know yet whether they’ll be able to build roads through deferral areas, meaning some non-deferred areas may be cut off."

"On Nov. 18, dozens of logging trucks and other vehicles made three loops of Smithers from Pacific Inland Resources via Railway Ave., Toronto Street, Hwy 16 and Tatlow Rd. honking horns and sporting signs such as “Forestry feeds my family” and “BC is built on forestry.”

Organizers said the demonstration was to raise awareness of how important the industry is to the Bulkley Valley and the devastating impact it could have the local economy."

Minister Conroy says jobs won’t be lost if deferrals don’t happen. What does that even mean? She also says she wants to work with us. Despite no response to our many previous requests to do just that, our door remains open and we're waiting.

Old growth roots deep into BC’s coffers, economy and communities.

"The ripple effect of unemployment would filter through the community affecting businesses of all kinds, contractors and their support services. But, it would seep to a deeper level impacting homeowners and curbing family expenditures. It would also hit young people and professions—disenchanted with urban home prices—returning to home communities such as Port McNeill. “We would be losing those people."

"For a number of months, the Truck Loggers Association of BC has called for a collective vision for forestry and on the issue of old growth – that strikes a balance to ensure the livelihood of B.C. forest workers and resource communities while also addressing society’s expectations of B.C.’s forest-management.

We asked for meaningful collaboration among all key stakeholders, including First Nations, community groups, licensees and non-government organizations – so decision-making would be informed with a true understanding of the issues and the consequences, to find a solution that works for everyone.

That’s why we were so disheartened to see the government’s announcement on old-growth deferrals that government estimates will cause 4,500 lost jobs, but will likely be far higher, each of those representing a family that will be forever impacted."

British Columbia has planted more than one billion trees since 2018, including 301 million this year. 🌲

“B.C. is leading the country in its science-based reforestation efforts and has planted over 1 billion trees since 2018,” said Katrine Conroy, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.
