I GREW UP in the northern part of B.C. I spent time on the Islands off the coast of Prince Rupert. I spent time up the Nass River Valley, Babine Lake, and many more of the most scenic areas I have ever been in.
But there are others who are uncaring about the future of this land. They are those who would dump garbage in the back country, somehow thinking they’re getting away with something. Or chewing up the grasslands because of some great desire to find virgin territory to destroy.
These people are not fit to be in those areas.
