In the eleventh episode of the ForestWorks podcast, host Stewart Muir and guest Jim Girvan discuss BC's Old Growth Strategic Review and the downstream impacts of curtailing forestry in BC.
Jim Girvan, RPF and former executive director of the Truck Loggers Association of BC.
Welcome to another episode of Forest Works, the show that talks about all things forestry - the people, the stories and the places of British Columbia's single largest industry.
ForestWorks is brought to you by Resource Works, looking at how responsible development of British Columbia's natural resources creates jobs and incomes throughout the province, both directly and indirectly, while maintaining a clean and healthy environment.
This week, we speak with Jim Girvan, Registered Professional Forester, former executive director of the Truck Loggers Association of BC, and past director of the Pacific Logging Congress. He’s served on numerous provincial committees and councils shaping forestry regulation in the province. We get into the downstream impacts of curtailing forestry in BC, and how many of the sophisticated recommendations in BC’s Old Growth Strategic Review aren’t reflected in the province’s recent decisions.
Join us every Saturday morning for a new episode of ForestWorks. Or tune in to Radio NL 610AM Kamloops, Saturdays at 7 AM Pacific as we focus on the people, places, and stories of this important and often complicated industry that drives the BC economy.
