Patrick Weiler, a member of parliament from British Columbia, has introduced a private member’s motion urging the government to immediately and permanently stop old-growth logging on federal land and end the export of old-growth products “as swiftly as possible, and no later than 2030.”

“In the opinion of the House, the government should immediately and permanently end all destruction of old growth forests on federal land, excepting on Indian Reserve Lands, which shall be subject to consent with the respective First Nation,” the motion says.
