Not one shred of ev­i­dence

Euroa Gazette - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

PER­HAPS these anti-log­ging groups who falsely claim that they are about sus­tain­abil­ity are be­ing caught out at their own mis­chief.

Have found one let­ter on FOI they try to build a case that VicForests are ly­ing.

VicForests has no obli­ga­tion what­so­ever to an­swer to a self-pro­claimed group of anti-log­gers.

At present six state forests are hav­ing sur­veys for lead­beater pos­sum un­der­taken caus­ing them to be closed to log­ging.

These sur­veys have arisen from the pres­sure from fun­da­men­tal­ist en­vi­ron­men­tal groups at­tempt­ing to pre­vent log­ging in state forests, not en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist but mis­chief mak­ers.

Try­ing to force DELPW to un­der­take a re­view of Strath­bo­gie state for­est was a strat­egy used by the anti-log­ging group to pre­vent log­ging in Strath­bo­gie

Be­fore look­ing for the speck in VicForests eye these anti-log­ging fun­da­men­tal­ist en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist need to look at the log in their own eye.

This group has no ac­cred­i­ta­tion by any­body but at the Fe­bru­ary 20, 2014 meet­ing ac­cused ViForests of ig­nor­ing them.

At the two meet­ings ini­ti­ated by VicForests their be­hav­iour was ap­palling with plac­ards, rude­ness and threats of vi­o­lence and court ac­tion and they can­not coun­te­nance any opin­ion but their own.

The lead­beater pos­sum must be the most sur­veyed an­i­mal on the planet as these fun­da­men­tal­ist use ev­ery du­bi­ous un­truth­ful ploys to pre­vent log­ging.

Not one of the logs re­cently har­vested from Strath­bo­gie con­tained nest­ing holes, all stumps will re­gen­er­ate, the for­est floor was un­harmed, space has been made for greater re­gen­er­a­tion, and Aus­tralia’s econ­omy has ben­e­fited and there is not one shred of ev­i­dence that one an­i­mal or bird was harmed in any way.
