Ah, just as I expected. Thanks for that Tungsten. The CIA strikes again.

Re: Old growth logging

Do cedar hedges take a lot of water once they get established? I have some pretty tall ones & I rarely water them. They are doing fine. When they are young, for sure you've got to water. I think laurel would make a better hedge.

Shogun is quite often the only one making sense here. If everyone was the same, wouldn't that be boring? A lot of folks toe the leftist line, at least he is brave enough to speak his mind. I will continue to read his posts.

Re: Trudeau

Maybe get your glasses. I did not knock teh CERB. I said he made it way too easy for people who didn't need it, to collect it. There were also lots of people who should have went back to work once it was possible to do so.

Re: Trudeau

Generations to come will be paying for his covid handouts. He made it way to easy for people to collect the benefits who did not need them & should have went back to work. It's commonplace to expect incompetence from him.

Re: Old growth logging

A lot of cedars get brown patches this time of year, it's natural for them to do that. However, I spoke to an arborist 2 days ago & he said it's worse this year due to the summer we had (summers we are having).

There are way less sawmills in BC than just a few years ago. There are even less sawmills that can handle large trees. (Most mills now are not set up to handle logs of that diameter). That being said, as old growth is increasingly harder to find, the value & price goes up exponentially.

I have no issues with clear cutting areas that have already been harvested / replanted. It's the most efficient way to log. But for the sake of planet earth's occupants, please leave the old growth alone. Hopefully Horgan will do something about it.

And seriously, what's with people driving their cars around with no lights on? You'd think auto manufacturers would build cars so the lights are always on.

Lol, that's funny. I had to walk over to the section where they spray water on the lettuce to get my hands wet in order to get the bags open.

Re: Enough politics and bickering already..

I spoke to a guy years ago whose company (forget the name) was doing environmental clean up of all the old DEW line stations. He said it was a real mess & a really big job. Any idea if they are finished doing that?

Re: Old growth logging

B.C . is so big, why do they feel they have to cut old growth at Fairy Creek? Perhaps the BC gubbmint can trade Teal that spot for a different spot somewhere else in the province?

Those bags at the grocery store that you use to put apples & oranges in are very hard to open. At least now they have one end that says "open".

Sucking up to the communists while pissing off the USA (our biggest trading partner). Just like his dad did. Do all the fools who voted for the mincing pimp know the extent of China's human rights abuses?

Re: China Syndrome

So glad they are home. This was a tough nut to crack. I hope they get compensated somehow. Considering how much money the mincing pimp has thrown around, he could throw some their way.
