Chapman Watershed Event-ELF-concerned citizens – mock-roadblock and new signage

Chapman Watershed - mock-roadblock and new signage-1 unnamedElphinstone Logging Focus (ELF) along with concerned citizens met today (March 25) at 2 different access roads that lead directly into the Chapman Drinking Watershed, lower Sunshine Coast, where they held a mock-roadblock and install 2 new signs stating protection of the Chapman against Logging, Mining & Contamination. We’re concerned about future logging by North Van-based Surespan on the east side. In our opinion, The Sunshine Coast Regional District has been lax regarding securing the Chapman from logging, possible mining (gravel) and illegal dump sites by not going ahead and installing locked gates and chain-link fencing (50M in either direction). They need to move ahead with or without permission of The Province on the grounds of a health concern. They will clearly get the support of residents – consumers of the drinking water. The signs clearly state the trouble the Chapman continues to face, and sends a message to Surespan that this community will not stand by and allow anymore logging in our drinking watersheds.
