Lake Louise ski resort cutting whitebarkpinetrees
« on: 12/18/17, 07:13 PM »

Sound familiar? Will the Canadian government seems a little more serious about protecting endangered trees then our own US forest service. Heckler owned Forest Service even seems to endorse the  harassment and intimidation on those whistle blowers who report the offenders. Strange world.

"CALGARY — A world-renowned ski resort in Alberta has admitted to cutting down a stand of endangered trees, although it hasn't been decided yet how large of a fine will have to be paid."

"Hepner said the fine is likely to be substantial.

"The act calls for substantial fines," he said. "I think when the judge decides on which experts to accept and comes up with a number – in terms of the number of trees – she will impose the appropriate fine, but that all has to be litigated."

Eacott said the maximum fine under the Species At Risk Act for each tree destroyed is $300,000. The maximum per tree is $250,000 under the national parks act."

Keep in mind that our own forest service valued a chopped up whitebark pine tree to be equivalent to the price of a nursery grown  pine tree at $100 each. The result was around $6,000 fee charged to our local commercial offenders.

Also note in the first post 'will' should read 'well' and 'heckler' should read 'heck our own'

Freeski, do you know that you can edit your own posts to correct these spelling and grammatical errors yourself?

In the upper right portion of every one of your own posts, there is a link which says (Modify). Click that to edit your post, then preview and save as usual.
