The company that holds timber harvesting rights for a contentious cutblock on the slopes of Mount Elphinstone has won an injunction against protesters.
Elphinstone Logging Focus (ELF) set up camp on a road leading into cutblock A87125 (near the Twist and Shout mountain biking trail) in June, shortly after BCTS put it up for auction.
A judge in Vernon has now granted an interim injunction to Sunshine Coast-based Peninsula Logging. The injunction, valid until Sept. 26, names Ross Muirhead, Hans Penner, Laurie Bloom and “John and Jane Doe.”
RCMP visited the camp Aug. 31, but did not move to enforce the injunction.
