Ymir residents concerned about potential logging in the community's watershed
Ymir residents have concerns when it comes to potential logging in their watershed.
BC Timer sales has told the community, they're looking to put 5 cutblocks up for sale in the watershed...although logging isn't said to be happening anytime soon, they're in the preliminary stages of planning.
Area G Director Hans Cunningham says there's a letter writing campaign to the BCTS in the community, and residents have formed the Ymir Community Watershed Action Team.
There's also going to be a resolution on the RDCK's agenda this week, where the board will make a determination about what it wishes to do about the watershed logging issue.
