Fight over logging on Powell River’s Lot 450 intensifies

The controversy over planned logging on land inside Powell River city limits is not going away.

The group “Pebble In the Pond” says it’s bringing in a lawyer to advise it on how to keep Island Timberlands from harvesting on the property known as Lot 450.

Judy Tyabji speaks for the group. She says city officials aren’t doing enough to address the concerns.

Island Timberlands owns the property, and
Powell River Sunshine Coast MLA Nicholas Simons says he’s talked to the company about the community’s concerns.

But, so far, he hasn’t heard back about requests for meeting with the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
