“In July 2019, government appointed panel members Garry Merkel and Al Gorley to lead an old-growth strategic review. They gathered input and examined old-growth management from a variety of perspectives. On April 30, 2020, they submitted 14 recommendations to the Province in their report.”

…”Al and I appreciated engaging with people from all across the province in developing our recommendations,” Merkel said. “We have provided our recommendations to the minister and look forward to government’s response. We are also pleased that the Province has agreed that the first step in improving old-growth management is to adopt a government-to-government  approach with full involvement of Indigenous leaders, governments and organizations in proposed changes.”
