The Cariboo Regional District has joined West Fraser in 100 Mile House in calling for a new Timber Supply Review in the South Cariboo.

A letter will be sent to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources.

Quesnel Mayor Bob Simpson raised the issue at this week’s City Council meeting…

“The 100 Mile House Timber Supply is not that old but they are running into all kinds of problems with it as the timber supply situation becomes more and more constrained and as the war in the woods accelerates as to people actually going and finding real volume on the ground that they can actually get into their mills.”

Simpson says it’s interesting because the 100 Mile Timber Supply is not that old and he suspects a similar request is going to come forward for Williams Lake and he hopes that Quesnel isn’t in the same boat when it’s cut is released, likely after the election.

He says any reviews need better inventory and must be expedited.
