From the North Bay Nugget

Ontario's Ministry of the Environment has failed to protect Temagami's old-growth forests by allowing a new 10-year logging plan to move forward, says an environmental group.

Earthroots claimed in a news release this week the ministry has failed to modify the logging plan, despite concerns raised by four different environmental and recreational groups.

The MOE's decision gives carte blanche for the current approach to logging in Temagami, one that prioritizes harvest volume over sustainability," said Mark Kear, Earthroot's forest campaigner, in a release.

The MOE's decision does nothing to alleviate the tension between conservationists, tourism operators and logging companies, but only exacerbates it."
