Sechelt: scorched earth between two waters?



I am so ashamed of Sechelt mayor, council and Sunshine Coast community forestís decision to endorse and promote logging in the Wilson Creek watershed, thereby extinguishing any hope of realizing an expanded Mount Elphinstone Park.

This decision will irreversibly affect future generations of people and wildlife; clear-cut logging cannot be reversed in a century or two. Sechelt promotes itself as being the beautiful land between two waters, but its policies are doing their darnedest to cut down every tree, pave every surface and accommodate every developer who sees a dollar to be made. We are well on our way to becoming the not-so-beautiful concrete, asphalt and scorched earth between two waters.†

Rebecca Pavitt, Sechelt
