VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province says that it is accepting comments on a discussion paper that is part of a review of the Fort Nelson Timber Supply Area.
Public feedback on the discussion paper will be considered by the chief forester until Tuesday, September 11th, before a new allowable annual cut limit is set.
