Five Communities Offered Joint Forest Agreement

The Province has offered the communities of Barriere, Chu Chua, Little Fort, Louis Creek and McLure a five-year probationary community forest agreement aimed, in part, at harvesting beetle wood in the area, Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger announced today.

"This agreement speaks to the teamwork of the five communities that are working together with the Province to stimulate the area's economy and contribute to the management of beetle wood in the Lower North Thompson area," Krueger said.
