Comments on Proposed Changes to Part IV, Division 3 - Administrative Remedies in the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act

Environmental Law, Forestry
Rolfe, Chris

This brief discusses proposed amendments to the administrative remedies provisions of the Forest Practices Code. West Coast Environmental Law Association is concerned that the proposed amendments contained in Bill 47, the Forest Statutes Amendment Act, 1997 will significantly diminish the effectiveness of the current compliance system while at the same time making the compliance system more cumbersome and costly to administer.

West Coast Environmental Law has a number of other significant concerns with regard to Bill 47, but due to time constraints we have been unable to comment on all concerns. Anyone interested in these other environmental concerns regarding Bill 47 should consider briefs being prepared by the BC Environment Network Forest Caucus and other environmental organizations.
