Chasm view
This link appears to show the extent to which the forest around the major climbing zones would be affected.

I'm not much for politics or petitions but I do love the views and climbing in Squamish. Please consider signing.

Signed and bump!

Here is what I wrote:

I usually visit Squamish twice every three years. It is an amazing place, the natural beauty of which is significantly more valuable to the area than any temporary one time profits derived from the proposed logging. Should this proposed logging occur I will vote with my dollars and spend my tourist money in another area and community that places greater value in the long term health and beauty of their natural places and resources. Please seriously consider the irreparable damage this proposed logging will create in one of the most beautiful area in all of Canada and the World.

Signed plus sent the link to friends and family.

This is really bad news to me. I remember when everyone was trying to stop Jumbo from being developed. I thougnt that would never happen.
