Protest and Press Conference, Jan 11

Logging Protesters

This morning some 30+ residents, friends, and neighbours gathered to Protest clear cut logging in the Castle, and to attend a Press Conference at the site where Spray Lake Sawmills is planning to start clear cut logging

SLS personnel and contractors arrived at the site to find the Cat and Feller-Buncher they’d parked the night before surrounded by people, cars, and signs.

After a cordial and respectful discussion with those present, the SLS folks decided to retire for the day to consider their next move.

The Press Conference went well. A number of TV networks sent crews that kept busy interviewing the protesters and filming the action. Print and Internet media were also in attendance.

Protesters plan to be at the site again tomorrow (Thursday, Jan 12).

    Thanks to those that could be there to show the opposition to this clear cut for all the rest of us that couldn’t be there.
