Northern Rockies Regional Municipality

Northern Rockies Forestry Rejuvenation Efforts Noted in BC Legislature

On Tuesday, October 17, the Northern Rockies was mentioned in the BC Legislature during a discussion between Dan Davies, MLA - Peace River North and the honourable Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Development and Rural Development. In the discussion, concerns frequently voiced by the NRRM regarding monopolization of timber rights (tenure) in the Fort Nelson Forest District were raised. NRRM Mayor and Council have been very vocal about this issue (with both provincial government and industry representatives), as they seek to attract forest industry investors to the region, and cultivate interest in the currently under utilized fibre resource. It was also confirmed in this discussion that senior Ministry staff are available to speak with any potential business investors about potential fibre supply.
