The Nazko First Nation is holding a Day of Action today to protest it’s share of the annual allowable cut it is getting in their territory.
Chief Stuart Alec says the 20 thousand cubic meters they’ve been offered so far is insignificant and no where near the 10 percent of the Allowable Annual Cut in their territory.
He says an information picket will be set up today around 3 kilometers in on the 39-hundred road…
“So we will be slowing down the logging trucks and give a briefing on why we are doing that and we will be giving them a copy of our press release and then allowing them to go through. So they can be expecting about a 10 minute delay each way as they cross the picket of information.”
Alec says he is hoping this will signal to both the Provincial Government and industry that they are serious about getting a fair share of the cut.
If not he says things could escalate into a full roadblock or court action.
