That's terrible. I thought those old growth forests were protected. I'll have to look that up for curiosity sake. Thankfully the logging industry is shrinking - I saw an article about this recently.

They are protected now more than before.
I heard a sad story about it that happened 20 years ago from my roommate in Vancouver BC. Maybe I can ask her if she will want to talk about it in the post.

Only when the last tree has died and
The last river has been poisoned and
The last fish has been caught,
Will we realise that
We cannot eat money
