Still Fighting for a Clearcut Victory
Claiming they are ready to log in more sustainable ways, timber companies in Canada want Greenpeace to call off its international campaign against British Columbia forest products. Weyerhaeuser Vice President Linda Coady said she is hopeful all sides will have reached a basic agreement by March on which coastal lands in B.C. should be protected from logging and where logging can continue. But she said the agreement could be derailed if Greenpeace doesn’t end its campaign. Greenpeace’s Gavin Edwards responded that the campaign won’t end until logging companies have made actual changes in their current forest practices and stopped logging in controversial areas.
