Feedback on 'Sanctuary'

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. I didn't even know this was happening. As a long time camper in
Liscomb Mills, where my father was born and raised, I looked to the Game Sanctuary as one place that couldn't be touched."
Dianna Lynn Tibert, Liscombe Mills, NS

" Let's hope there is enough public outcry to stop this in its tracks. Then let's get on with some real protection for our wilderness areas...." Joan Massey, MLA
Dartmouth East
NDP Environment Critic

"Well done on your proposal for saving the sanctuaries. We read it all and fully agree. We sent it to our MLA. Hope he gets thousands of them. Good Luck and thank you for caring and taking the time to put this thing together. Lets hope it not too late...
Rod & Valerie Horne, Moser River

A lone survivor of past 'harvests'.

What if more of these trees were allowed to stand tall and proud while younger trees grew up in their shelter?

East River Liscombe

Very little clearcutting is ever done where outsiders can see them. What are they ashamed of?

If it can't be done in the open, should it be done at all?
