I am writing with regards to the Valemount Community Forest Co. Ltd. From what I hear and see, the Community Forest is doing a fantastic job, managing the forest, moving forward with their mill, and employing local workers. I think it is a mistake to make changes to the board based on one person’s opinion and without proper consultation with the community. The workers in the forest industry are more knowledgeable in their field than the average citizen. I don’t understand trying to fix something that isn’t broken. I respectfully suggest that you rescind Policy 81. Do you really want to follow McBride’s lead?

Yours truly,
Joan Kruisselbrink
