The Committee was formed earlier this year in response to the mid-term timber supply shortage, and the MLAs on the Committee are working on a report to provide "recommendations that could increase timber supply." They've been touring the province to find out what British Columbians think about the options being considered, and their report will be released on August 15th.
The Committee is looking for feedback about: the principles that should guide government attempts to mitigate the timber supply shortage (such as lifting harvesting constraints or harvesting marginally economic timber); how these decisions should be made, and by whom; local issues that you think should be considered; and advice about "whether and how" to mitigate the timber supply shortage.
You can find additional background information about the Committee on my website here.
The Committee will be in Williams Lake on Thursday, July 5th, from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., at the Pioneer Complex, Room B #118, 351 Hodgson Road.
The Committee will be in Quesnel on Friday, July 6th, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., in the Atrium at the College of New Caledonia.
The Committee is coming to Williams Lake and Quesnel to talk about the future of your forests and your community, and I will be attending both meetings to listen to what you have to say. Please take the time to participate in this important discussion.
