Weyerhauser is getting a 3 million dollar tax break for donating what is ostensibly a stump field,and the government considers this a valid expansion of the park.Simply put,it's pre-election crap,seeing as how Weyerhauser is not giving up the portion of ancient forest(about 400 hectares,same size as the stump field )they plan to log adjacent the park someday(or extort future tax breaks with).
What's more,the government is still considering dropping a large number of the trees in the grove to expand parking along the highway.Neither party seems to understand that the nearby logging has left the grove overexposed to the elements as it is.
I have personally walked the forests of this area,and it would be nice if they were spared.Forest management on Vancouver Island has been appalling,to say the least
