More than 3000 people have sent letters to the Premier of British Columbia to object to logging in the ancient temperate rainforest. And about 2000 people have sent letters to the CEO of International Forest Products. This is a great response in less than a week!

If you haven't sent a letter yet, you can read about the issue and send letters from:
