SCCA News

The SCCA has written a letter to the Minister of the Environment in support of an expanded park on Mount Elphinstone.

Local residents are urging the government to expand three very small protected parcels into a 1500 hectare Mount Elphinstone Provincial Park. BC Timber Sales is presently planning to log cutblock #A87124 within the proposal area.

Elphinstone Logging Focus (ELF) organized a public meeting on February 21 to discuss the proposed park.

BURNCO Rock Products Ltd. is proposing an aggregate extraction project at McNab Creek in Howe Sound (approx. 10 km east of Port Mellon). This gravel extraction project would have outputs ranging from 400,000 tonnes per year to as high as 4 million Tonnes per year for special project demands.

The Future of Howe Sound Society opposes this development.

The SCCA has responded to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency's request for public input into the requirements of the environmental assessment. (Click on Read More for our response.)
