B.C Foresters, First Nations complain about slash and burn of trees for oil and gas industry
CBC has learned that huge swaths of trees are being burned to make way for energy megaprojects. Sharon Glover is the CEO of the Association of B.C. Foresters. She told Daybreak's Betsy Trumpener no one even knows how much wood is being burned. We also heard from Fort Nelson First Nation band councillor and former chief Kathi Dickie. She says there are more logs being removed by the oil and gas industry than were ever taken by the forest industry.
