UBCM talks pine beetle funding action plan

A question and answer period with Federal Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn at the Union of BC Municipalities Convention has revealed there may be some oversight in the time given to communities to apply for pine beetle monies.

It was Vanderhoof Mayor Len Fox who raised the problem. His community received terms of reference for the latest grant September 7th with a deadline for submissions just six weeks later.
