What a bunch of crap. I've been mountain biking on the coast for almost 30 years, and though I understand logging is a major part of our economy, I have seen first hand the decimation logging companies do to the coastal forests.
For the BC government to sit back and allow our forests to be pillaged, yet come down hard on trail builders is hypocrisy. Not only do mountain bikers contribute millions of dollars into the economy of BC, we also rejuvenate towns(Cumberland, Squamish, etc), and build and maintain trails for many other groups and visitors to use(horseriders, hikers, climbers, runners, tourists, etc.).
Let's allow pipelines to our coast, our forests to be shipped out of the country, but come down hard on trail builders. Yup, a bunch of crap.
