David Randall started this petition to The Honourable Doug Donaldson (Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development) and

The Eagle Pass Summit fire lookout, built in 1922, was rebuilt by enthusiasts, who did their due diligence in trying to get a permit. A Front Counter BC Government agent told them they didn't need a permit to rebuild an existing structure, so went ahead and rebuilt it. Now, "...representatives of Recreation Sites and Trails B.C. (part of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations) learned of the cabin being rebuilt and indicated it could be torn down." The BC government are also investigating those who they say rebuilt it illegally.
