Meadow Creek Cedar extension expires

A local forest company’s extension to prepare an appeal of its license suspension ran out Friday.

A local forest company’s extension to prepare an appeal of its license suspension ran out Friday.

However, no date has yet been set for Meadow Creek Cedar’s hearing before the Ministry of Forests’ regional executive director.

Early last month, Kootenay Lake district forest manager Garth Wiggill informed the company its license was being suspended.

Meadow Creek filed notice of appeal, and the cases were expected to be heard by March 12, but the company asked to be given until March 23 to prepare its case, which was granted.

The company also appealed a $42,000 fine for breaching its silviculture obligations to the Forest Appeals Commission.

Ministry of Forests public affairs officer Brennan Clarke says while the commission has accepted Meadow Creek’s appeal, it has not yet provided a timeline for its decision.

“Staff note that this is a complicated and time-consuming process that will take several weeks at minimum,” Clarke says.

The company also faces several more non-compliance hearings, the next of which is April 3.
