Whereas healthy ecosystems are vital for the cultures, environment, economy and social fabric of Cortes Island and beyond,

Whereas the Cortes lands owned by Island Timberlands, from Carrington Bay to Squirrel Cove, are within the Forestry zone and retaining this zoning is vital to Cortes Island,

We the undersigned oppose clear cut logging, real estate development, and rezoning without community consultation and approval,

And we the undersigned support working together with Island Timberlands to make decisions that protect the ecosystem integrity of these lands as laid out by Forestry Stewardship Council guidelines.
