The weather has been too, too nice and I'm late with my post. Today I'm going to take you up to the Cape Breton Highland Plateau, a place where most people do not have access. But the loggers do! And hundreds of miles of roads wind through the plateau for the paper company to access the wood.
Back in the 1950's, the Nova Scotia government gave the paper company the right to all the wood on all of the crown land. Well, in Cape Breton, that is a substantial area. I am imagining it was to sweeten the pot to entice the company to set up business here. The agreement is so ironclad, that when the provincial government wants to designate an area as protected, they have to get permission from the paper company, and that only comes after the paper company has looked the land over to make sure there are no good trees on it.
Just what am I admiring here?
The reason the government needs to rescind,
or at least re-work, the agreement.

makes a big difference!)
