ST. JOHN’S, Nfld. — The Newfoundland Supreme Court says, ‘No,’ to trucking old-growth forest logs through a provincial park.
The precedent-setting decision bans movements through the T’railway Park after Corner Brook Pulp and Paper argued that transport of logs should be approved in the same manner that cottage owners are allowed to use the park to reach their properties.
Trucking has been included in the eastern-most province’s definition of logging thanks to Justice Leo Barry. He used a dictionary to rule that logging means not just cutting down trees but also removing them.
