Editor’s Note: The following is an open letter to MLA Terry Lake:
Dear Dr. Lake:
The Clearwater Valley leading into Wells Gray Park is a unique combination of volcanic and glacier created landscapes supporting a diverse and abundant flora and fauna population. The pristine and awe inspiring Clearwater River flows through it.
People from all over the globe come to visit Clearwater to appreciate the natural beauty that Canada is renown for, and is often no longer available in their locals.
The Clearwater Valley is under threat of being logged. The public, the residents of the area, need to be involved and consulted in the decisions that will influence the future of this valuable and beautiful landscape – the future of our community!
Hon. Dr. Terry Lake, please support the call for a public input process and get behind conserving this grand valley!
