How much of Canada's old growth forests do the money huggers want to cut down?
All of it. Each and every massive, ancient, beautiful tree, wherever it may be.
Where we see dendrological miracles, they see only bags of cash. They want to convert all the old growth to those bags that they clutch to their chests as they chuckle maniacally in the wreckage.
And they will get all of it, if we don't stop them. And we can, if we want to bad enough, stop them. They are, after all, our trees.
A recent example of our power to save the old growth concerns the sale of remnant old growth forests near Port Renfrew. No one, other than the money huggers, thought it was a good idea, and said as much quite loudly.
The NDP/Green government, that never should have put the old growth up for sale in the first place, have relented, and the auction never took place. For now.
The cashoterrorists will be back, though. They will keep on coming until all the old growth is gone, or until we get up off our couches and stop them.
What happened in the Port Renfrew forest shows that more of us are up and ready to fight for what is left.
Tree hugging, good. Money hugging, not so much.
