Logging is what helped build this province and there's been a fair bit in the news lately on old growth logging including the blockades at Fairy Creek. The issue of how these ancient tress are quickly disappearing and that more needs to be done to protect what's left is something that the current NDP government is failing on. If you dive into the ecology of old growth tress it becomes apparent how important they are. There's also the social value as well. If you've never spent any time wandering among and appreciating giant trees it's an experience not to be missed and I suggest you find time to do it before it becomes next to impossible to do. This photo popped up on my very limited twitter feed and I felt sad when I saw it.
The Narwhal has done a pretty good job reporting on the issue:
