2017 Political Party forestry commitments comparison

A comparison of the current (April 17th) political party election platform commitments regarding forestry are presented in Political forestry commitments-2017 election.  Overall, the commitments of both the BC Liberals and the BC NDP are a major disappointment.  They are too general, lack meaningful actions and overall do not reflect the recommendations from BC concerned citizens. They are grossly deficient in dealing with the major issues such as forest sector infrastructure, forest management practices, community involvement in strategic decision-making regarding their local forests and adequate forest management compliance and enforcement.  Comments and a recommendation regarding refining their election platforms are provided.
