Voice concerns regarding dock policy

The Ministry of Forest Lands and Natural Resources are coming to a lake, river, creek, or pond near you and they are going to tell you to remove or substantially modify your wharf or dock to comply with their outdated regulations. They will hold no public consultations and turn a blind eye to the environmental impacts and undue hardships imposed on the residents of B.C. that live in these areas. Here in the Thompson region, to say this program is a disaster is an utter understatement.

I encourage you to voice your concerns to Premier Clark, Steve Thomson (Minster of FLNRO) and Mary Polak (Minister of Environment) to encourage them to see the folly of this program and the disgruntlement over misspent tax dollars. Surely common sense and tax resources being put to better use should be a priority for this government.
