Upper Clearwater Referral Group Meetings with Canfor and Forest Service


Between 28 January 2015 and 29 August 2016, The Upper Clearwater Referral Group met with Canfor and BC Government representatives on nine occasions to address concerns of local residents regarding Canfor’s cutting plans in this portion of its license area. The success of these meetings can be judged from the following outcomes:


Voice recordings were kept of seven of the nine meetings, that is, with exception of the first exploratory meeting and of the last, at the request of Ministry of Forest District Manager Rachael Pollard. These voice recordings were used to create meeting notes, which were later submitted to all participants for approval. The meeting notes are repoduced below, in support of the above outcome summary. The names of the industry and government representatives have been retained in order that these people may learn from this public record of their behaviour.
