Tell premier John Horgan to stop the destruction
One of Canada's natural treasures  could disappear in 5 to 10 years if we don’t take action now. British Columbia’s old-growth forests are being chopped down at an alarming rate on Premier John Horgan’s watch.
According to a stunning new map from Conservation North , B.C.’s old growth forests have been nearly eliminated by industrial activity. Despite this dire situation, Premier Horgan is still allowing logging in nine "protected" old growth areas .
This destruction must stop now. The province’s forests, territories of many First Nations, are recognised across Canada and around the world as some of the most spectacular on Earth.
B.C. holds the most biodiversity of any province, with about half of all species in Canada found here. But more than 2,000 species of these animals and plants are now at risk of disappearing .
A provincial report provides a clear path forward to protect forests, yet  Horgan continues to drag his heels. We will not stand idle as some of the oldest forests in Canada fall for profit.
At a time of climate urgency, protecting B.C.’s old forests is one of the best things the province can do in the fight against climate change . In fact, without B.C.’s last stands of old growth trees, Canada may not be able to meet its carbon-reduction goals  under the Paris Agreement.
Tell the Premier to keep his promises and act to protect old-growth forests now!
