Three B.C. First Nations want forestry workers to temporarily stop cutting old-growth trees on southern Vancouver Island while they create their own forestry management plan and have submitted the request to the B.C. government.
On Saturday, June 5, 2021, the Ditidaht, Huu-ay-aht, and Pacheedaht First Nations formally gave notice to the province of its decision to defer old-growth logging for two years in the Fairy Creek and the Central Walbran areas.
The provincial government will need to grant the request before the logging stops.
