We've heard from sources close to the BC government that an announcement on forest reform is coming this week.

This is our moment to help make sure the old-growth forests are protected — before they are gone forever.

The window of opportunity is closing. A flood of calls from constituents like you, raising the alarm about the last of BC’s old-growth, could convince MLAs to amplify pressure up to the government — and ensure their announcement includes an immediate moratorium on logging old-growth trees.
