Another Attempt to Privatize Forest Land

Once again neo-conservative forces are attempting to convince British Columbians to privitize 25% of public forest lands.These right-wing forces have launched a new organization, British Columbians for Private Forests (BCPF), to further the on-going pro-market agenda of privatization. Not surprisingly they cite the untrue–but widely accepted mantra–that the markets and private individuals would be better managers of forests. They also ignore the realities of prior, unextinguished Aboriginal Title and Rights. It will be interesting to track their membership and where their funding comes from.
