  1. Perhaps a more practical application of wood by-products would be "glue-lam" construction materials, which could utilize a larger minority of these "waste products"?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glued_laminated_timber
  2. Has anyone stopped to think about what the trees that are cut, are used for? Or is that not a consideration at all?

  4. I interpreted Pacheedaht Bill Jones general comments to mean (paraphrased) "no old growth logging - for now". But definitely not forever. With that in mind, the question is: will the Pacheedaht get back into logging old growth by contracting out (say to Teal Jones), or will they cut the trees themselves?
  5. I do not know of Victor Peters stand on felling old growth. I do know that Bill Jones is in favour of logging them, according to a Narwhal article....
  6. Could this be a "bright side" - in that those suffering from PSSD are among the first people to begin the long task of reducing earth's population to livable levels?

  8. Before these vaccines were put on the market, the covid numbers began escalating into the thousands per day. Now, post-vaccine for most Canadians, the covid numbers are escalating into the thousands per day. I'd say this is indicative of the ineffectiveness of the vaccines - and ranting that it is "fault" of so-called anti-vaxxers cannot be applied, as we were ALL "anti-vaxxers" when there was no vaccine until relatively recently. So - tell me how the current crop of "anti-vaxxers" has in any way affected the increasing covid numbers.
  9. Guest the_truth: So you are in favour of favouring those that society considers "useful"? Sounds very Marxist to me.....
  10. I trust that our government will handle this "mink crisis" in the same robust fashion as it handled Site "C"....? As an aside, Leslie, the very first letter to the editor I had posted some 60 years ago was in Maclean's Magazine - and was on this very topic of fur "farming". The essence of the letter said it wasn't needed then, and (if anything) it sure isn't needed now!
  11. How many people though, would vote Green, if neither the NDP nor Liberals can do the job?
  12. How about "pulling the wool over a generally disinterested public's eyes"? Doesn't "roll off the tongue" especially well, bit I consider it accurate...
  13. Reality dictates that ALL user-of-otherwise-"renewable"-resources be halted, so the environment can restore itself. This means ALL fishing & logging (commercial and otherwise). An indicator of the success of this quasi-prohibition will be when the size of that salmon in the above pic becomes more common than not.......
