Next month’s municipal election could determine the future of North Cowichan’s forests, according to local forest activist and film maker Icel Dobell. Dobell has just released Voice of the Unexpected, her third video about the community forests, to remind citizens to get out to vote and to protect the local forest ecosystems. …Dobell said what’s unexpected is the story of the past four years of North Cowichan’s ongoing review of its 5,000-hectare municipal forest reserve. …Dobell is one of the founders of Where Do We Stand, a public platform advocating for the protection of the Six Mountain Forest, as her group calls North Cowichan’s MFR. …Dobell said her fourth video, New Old Growth: Voice of Promise, which will be released soon.
