Celebration of a YTS Champion

Youbou TimberLess featured in the British Columbia Forests Society newsletter.

Thousands of logging truck loads taken out of our forests each week. Where are they going?




In 2002 the Vancouver Sun reported the BC Liberals allowed the highest amount of raw log export on record – 3.7 million cubic metres, which translates to 100,000 full truckloads, enough to employ almost 4000 people and run 6 sawmills.

During this time period, the Liberals destroyed the “social contract” for BC’s forests, removing longstanding provisions to ensure local people benefit from public forests. This promises devastation for BC’s communities

We should know. In 2001 TimberWest closed our Youbou sawmill in order to export more raw logs. The government refused to act, preferring to turn a blind eye to its obligations to make the company keep local jobs.

Now, we’re joining with workers from other communities that are getting a raw deal from increased corporate control over our forests and who are also watching logs speed by them on the highway heading for distant mills. We are joining forces with like-minded people everywhere who believe in public control over our resources. Solutions are out there. We need you to join us in our struggle to make sure they are implemented.
