Gabriel Sinduda started this petition to Provincial Government of British Columbia

In a review of BC Timber Sales’ (BCTS) sales schedule, environmental organizations Elphinstone Logging Focus (ELF) and Sierra Club BC have found the provincial government agency is proposing cutblocks across the last intact old-growth rainforest areas on Vancouver Island adding up to more than 1,300 hectares. The area, equivalent to the size of more than three Stanley Parks, is intended to be auctioned for industrial clearcutting in 2019. 
This at a time when we KNOW that these forests are among the greatest standing defenses we have against the ravaging forces of climate change. They are the lungs of our planet. They work 24/7 to sequester the atmospheric carbon. They oxygenate our air and are habitat to 1000's of animal species struggling for survival. I won't even drop footnotes and references here because at this time anyone paying attention KNOWS that the value of these forests can no longer be strictly monetized for timber sales and corporate profit.
These are desperate times and they call for desperate measures.


Andrew Weaver (MLA, Leader of the Green Party of British Columbia) is on the record repeatedly with a claim of support for a moratorium on old-growth logging in British Columbia. We need that moratorium NOW.
Please consider signing this petition to send a clear message to Andrew Weaver -- climate scientist! -- that he must leverage his significant role in the current BC government to bring about a moratorium on old-growth logging now.
