Seattle Mayor Pressures Premier Horgan for ‘Immediate Halt’ to Logging near Canada-US Border

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has written Premier John Horgan to express “grave concern” over logging in a critical watershed near the BC border, urging that the work be stopped immediately.

The letter from Durkan tells Horgan that the logging is taking place in the Silverdaisy area of the upper Skagit watershed, an area known as the “donut hole, created when the western boundary of Manning Provincial Park was moved to exclude some mining claims.”
