The Regional District has requested that Island Timberlands cease all operations on DL 3040 (Stillwater Bluffs) while they enter into negotiations to acquire it for a regional park.

Please write to them and say thank you. This is a great first step.

Here is the letter ....

Darshan Sihota President Island Timberlands

Re: District Lot 3040 Powell River - Stillwater Bluffs

As you may be aware, the Powell River Regional District has identified District Lot 3040 Powell River as one of six regional park acquisition objectives through its Regional Parks and Greenspace Plan. In recent conversation with local Island Timberlands staff, the Regional District has been made aware that planned logging operations on the property would be deferred if the Regional District entered into meaningful discussions about acquisition of the property. Please take this letter as formal confirmation of this intent with the expectation that Island Timberlands will immediately cease all planning and harvesting activities on the property. As I expect you will understand, any harvesting of the standing timber on the property will adversely affect our subsequent acquisition negotiations.

The length of the proposed deferment of planning and harvesting operations will need to be further defined to our mutual satisfaction. Our staff is ready to meet with the appropriate Island Timberland staff at a time and place of your choosing to complete this detail and start confidential discussions about acquisition of the property. It is suggested that this meeting should be a priority to give you confidence of our seriousness and not to unnecessarily encumber or delay your corporate operations.

Thank you for your staff's offer of the deferment of operations and I look forward to a progressive and mutually beneficial negotiation of our acquisition of the property.

Mac Fraser

Chief Administrative Officer

50 plus people came out to Stillwater Bluffs and hiked in support of this area becoming a regional park. Ken Wu, TJ Watt and Chris from the Ancient Forest Alliance walked with us. Friends of Stillwater Bluffs and the Ancient Forest Alliance are working together to ask Island Timberlands to lay off contentious lands for now so that these lands can be purchased and protected. Also for the Provincial Government to pony up some money as part of a Parks Acquisition Fund so that these lands can be held protected for years to come. Thank you all for coming out.

If you missed the hike but still would love to support this campaign it's easy. Call or write to the Regional District and thank them for starting the negotiations with Island Timberlands and tell them that there constituency is noticing.
