How one woman stopped clear cut logging

Loading the player...
Christine Jack of the St'at'imc Nation maintains a checkpoint 50 kilometers into the Yalakom Valley near Lilloet BC, effectively
shutting down logging operations from that point and patrols the kilometers before the camp as well as nearby valleys. This began in 2015
to protect a traditional pithouse and archeological sites such as walking and hunting trails and ceremonial locations from further being
impacted by the logging industry. As we visited the Condor clearcut, 27 burn piles (discarded piles of trees) were counted. There has been no
active logging past her checkpoint since she began to maintain it.
