CIF/IFC DEFENDS LOGGING IN ALGONQUIN PARK

The Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF/IFC) issued a media release to address several new signs that have recently been posted along highways surrounding Algonquin Park, which state, “Logging in Algonquin Park is NOT Sustainable.” The signs are incorrect and misleading to the public. We encourage the public to seek out accurate information about logging in Algonquin Park. Forestry activities within the Park are carried out in a highly responsible and fully sustainable manner.
