VICTORIA – The Forest Practices Board will examine the activities of 0866740 B.C. Ltd., held by Aspen Planers Ltd., on forest licence A18700 during the week of Oct. 30 to Nov. 3, 2017. Originally scheduled for early July, the audit was postponed due to the forest fire situation at that time. Auditors will examine whether harvesting, roads, silviculture, fire protection and associated planning, carried out between July 2015 and October 2017, met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act. …Once the audit work is complete, a report will be prepared. Any party that may be adversely affected by the audit findings will have a chance to respond. The board’s final report and recommendations then will be released to the public and government.
