Protesters Aim to Stop Logging Near Beaver Mines

 
 

BEAVER MINES: With logging about to begin in the Castle Special Management area, a couple of environmental groups and a number of concerned residents held a protest there Wednesday morning.

The Stop Castle Logging group and Castle-Crown Wilderness Coalition joined at the event near the community of Beaver Mines.

Jacques Thouin with the Stop Castle Logging group stated that he's worried about all the development and work in the area further damaging the local wildlife. He commented that over the years there seems to be more silt in the rivers and more soil erosion. He added that as oil and logging companies build more roads to get in and out, it also allows more people in with ATV's who also do damage.

Another factor Thouin pointed out is that the clear cutting could make the area less attractive to tourists, hurting those businesses that make their living on people from out of town. 

He noted that some of the protesters will remain there for the time being to try and block some of the logging equipment as it comes in. Thouin added that anyone wanting to get involved or learn more can visit stopcastlelogging.org. He also encourages anyone interested in helping to write a letter to Premier Alison Redford and the provincial government regarding your concerns.
