Canada's newest Community Forest is on the Eastport Peninsula

This report Community Forest Network: A Consultation on the Eastport Peninsula is the result of many hours of work and dedication by too many people to mention individually. Obviously the efforts of the Model Forest and the Department of Natural Resources need to be recognized, as do the efforts of the report writers and dedicated individuals who took time out of their schedules to participate in the overall effort. That being said...where does it leave us now?

Although there were many 'somewhat unexpected' bumps and curves along the way, this report has made it into the hands of the people who originally petitioned the government for the halt to logging without fair and informed citizen input in and around their community. From here it will disperse to as many people as possible for review before our next community meeting which will hopefully be more open and informative than the initial 'circus' we saw from ill-equipped representatives of the Department of Natural Resources.

More to come in the following weeks...
