Richard Freeman’s claim that the McNeil government’s abandonment of the commitment to reduce clearcutting represents “world-class forest management” is ludicrous. Does he really believe that by cutting down every last piece of standing ‘timber’ we can achieve “ecological forestry”? As the head of Nova Scotia’s largest sawmill, he must realize that the decision is a desperate attempt to keep alive companies like his. Our forests have been over-harvested for years.
