British Columbia Premier John Horgan says his government will respect a decision by Pacheedaht First Nation, Ditidaht and Huu-ay-aht nations to defer old growth logging for two years in Fairy Creek and Central Walbran while they develop a stewardship plan.
“The first step in protecting old growth forests must be respecting Indigenous land management rights in their territories,” said Horgan in a tweet sent out Wednesday afternoon.
“That’s why we honour and approve the request.”
The nations have asked activists who have set up blockades and are protesting in those areas to allow workers from Teal-Jones to continue their work in other permitted regions.
