Saw this coming sadly. I will say I've seen heavy logging on the ash main this year and there are some very dicey sections for loaded trucks coming down and public vehicles with no radios going up. Concern for the public is a pretty legitimate issue I'm afraid and that's probably part of the reason. Too bad for sure hope this isn't permanent (I'm sure it won't be because of the costs). Let us know if there's something we can do.
A legitimate concern for the publics safety just doesn't cut it for me. There has always been dicey sections on this road and logging in the alberni valley has always been our biggest resource. Now, I know that island timberlands owns this land and can legally do whatever they want with it, BUT If we all just sit back idly and accept this we'll only enable them into making more decisions like this in the future. This town will suffer if this logging company chokes out access points to our great outdoors. We collectively need to come together and let then know that this is unacceptable. There are alot more fishermen and hunters in the valley than there are loggers. What's the next move. ... I'm not sure. That's why I'm on here. A solution needs to be figured out. Thanks for reading.
