Please, stop Pellet Plants from locating near residential homes, families and schools. Also, restrict the amount of fine wood dust particulate and other pollutants that they can emit.

The BC Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a Chinese Industry Group saying that BC Forests will fuel China's Energy needs by supplying them with lots of pellets. The reason given for this is that, while China is an enormous Country, they have no trees. They also, have lots of pollution. As a result of this decision, Pellet Plants are being proposed everywhere, including within metres of Residential Neighbourhoods and even Elementary Schools. They are also being proposed so near each other that supplying them will severely impact our forests. We will experience the double whammy of losing the trees that clean our air and breathing the fine wood dust particulate that this process creates in abundance and which the World Health Organization reports is Highly Carcinogenic to Humans. They produce much more smoke and pollution than any beehive burner ever did. It is said that those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it. If this situation is not corrected, we stand to become the same barren, pollution belching, scar on the Earth, that China has become.
