 A visual spatial presentation of all forest harvesting over the last 60+ years including paved roads, secondary roads and resource roads in the Prince George, Quesnel, Lakes District and Peace River timber supply areas. Included in the Peace River area will be all oil and gas development including well sites and pipelines. My commentary will be based upon my personal observations as an outdoorsman engaged in trapping, hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor activities in the Prince George area for the past fifty years as well as my experience related to the wildlife habitat review I conducted in 2014 as Parliamentary Secretary to Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. That review culminated in my report. http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/wildlife/management-issues/docs/getting_the_balance_right_improving_wildlife_habitat_management_in_british_columbia.pdf
