Vancouver, BC A total of 1,300 people took to the legislature on March 29, in a rally to save Old Growth forests in British Columbia, and to cease the export of raw logs. Roughly 100 millworkers from Crofton and Harmac came out to join in the protest as well.

Its an issue for working communities, the Times Colonist reported Mark Noonan, a pulp mill veteran of 32 years. The companies were given the land to provide jobs for communities. They didnt buy it.

A decision passed in 2003 allows governments to process logs in areas other than where they were harvested, the Colonist confirmed.
