Governments, all governments, are motherfucking liars. If that does not make immediate sense to you after how many years of experience you have had being lied to by governments go read, or re-read George Orwell's 1984.
So when whatever fucking government it was that said they would set aside perfectly loggable land for Japanese tourists to take pictures of and all the other values forests have that the forest industry finds laughable I laughed my fucking head off. By set aside, they meant set aside for later, suckers.
To reiterate - the earth is not flat, the moon is not made of cheese, there is no God, the government lies and the Canucks will never win the Stanley Cup.
