The Kettle River is the only river within two hours of my home that provides a trout stream fishery. It's also British Columbia's Most Endangered River due to "water extraction and development". Last monday I was on the Kettle River for the day. On a whim, I took a drive down a road punched in to the West Kettle River for a new development called Cottonwood Bend. What I saw on lot number B01 was a 5 acre clear cut right up to the river bank. Just the kind of irresponsible, unstainable and environmentally unsound development that has put the Kettle at the head of the Most Endangered River's List. When I got home I immediately sent out an e-mail to the Ministry of Environment about the logging on the property with out leaving a riparian zone. I was assured by the Senior Fisheries Biologist for the Kettle River, Tara White, that the Minsitry was "all over it". I haven't heard anything more about. We'll see if anything happens about it. As president of the local TU Chapter, I will make sure that we follow it this up. More Later T>
