I hope I am not the only one who cannot understand the decision-making ways of people in the Ministry of Forests.

Rick Farr should be rewarded for his work of cleaning the forests when loggers leave messes behind after harvesting.

Not only does he not receive thanks, he is stripped of his source of necessary income for living.

The wood he harvested — which was used by many people to heat their homes — will now, I imagine, sit where it is and perhaps be burned later, thereby creating emissions.

Where has common sense gone?
