Meadow Creek forest license extended

Friday’s deadline for the cancellation of the Meadow Creek Cedar forest licence has been extended for two months.

Friday’s deadline for the cancellation of the Meadow Creek Cedar forest licence has been extended for two months.

That’s because there is a potential buyer and negotiations are underway, according to the company’s Rod Arnold.

The Aug. 7 deadline was set by the provincial government after several years of turmoil over the license and failures to meet forest requirements.

If the current sale does not go through, it’s expected the licence will revert to the crown.
