Logging Roads to be Privatized and tolled!!!

The BC Liberal government has introduced Bill 30 THE RESOURCE ROAD ACT which under the guise of safety (being as they took away WCB's power to regulate logging road construction) and so they don't have to pay to keep them maintained (even though stumpage paid have more than paid for it in the past), will privatize every forest service road in the province through a new crown corporation. Industrial users, or those who win a contract to maintain the road, will be responsible for maintenance and will be able to collect tolls or sell permits for any other user, if they decide anyone else can use it.

Express your outrage to Minister Coleman and Neufeld:
rich.coleman.mla@leg.bc.ca
richard.neufeld.mla@leg.bc.ca

The critic for Forest is Bob Simpson: bob.simpson.mla@leg.bc.ca
and you should let your MLA know your thoughts. Find their email here:

thank you for the information!!! This is another attempt by the gov't. to "screw" us outdoor people, and give all the power to the big companies!! This Bill 30 must be stopped and not go though.
I will get the CDMC to write letters to the gov't. against this bill!! I hope that everyone who reads this form, writes a letter!! This bill, if passed, will effect everyone.

Actually a debate that seemed to resolve into a bit of a consensus among those familiar with existing legislation & regs and who had read the bill: this is a positive change and will not have the kind of impact initially suggested.

I saw that. Anyway, the government is letting the bill die this session...it may not come back until after the next election in May 2009 as they probably won't hold another legislative session.
