I was walking home and was confronted with the logging protest that has come into town today. I was just getting some groceries and as I turned the corner at Hastings and Nanaimo at 3:30pm there was a huge convoy of trucks. They’re coming in from all over BC to protest the demise of the logging industry and sawmill closures all across BC. They are protesting that the forest industry shutdown is killing the hundreds of communities and towns that rely on this sector of work. Wow, those horns were loud!
