Ontario proposes expansion of road network, opening old roads
MNR's new logging proposal calls for re-opening the Red Squirrel Road extension and the southern Liskeard Lumber Road.
A major trunk road is proposed through the roadless Muskego Wildlands. This road will connect with the Red Squirrel Road and complete the encirclement of Anima Nipissing Lake by road.
The logging plan neglects to show other roads. It is a long-standing practice of the ministry not to show these until after the plan is approved, and only then after persistence by the individual. Ottertooth has created this map to estimate the final road network that will be created by the proposed logging.
Previous logging proposals have sparked a legacy of protests that altered plans.
At open houses in March, MNR will release more detail on the plan. The ministry is asking for public comment.
Comments should be mailed or faxed to:
