BC court denies extension of Fairy Creek injunction
On Tuesday, Sept. 28, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Douglas Thompson denied Teal Jones’ request for a one-year extension to its injunction which prevents old-growth logging protestors from blockading forestry activities in the Fairy Creek, B.C., area.

In his decision, Thompson wrote that “The factors weighing in favour of extension do not outweigh the public interest in protecting the court from the risk of further depreciation of its reputation.”
