Balancing Bark Beetle Harvesting with Other Resource Values at Babine Lake

The owner of a fishing lodge (the complainant) was concerned about logging that Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (the licensee) was conducting near the shore of Babine Lake, one of the largest lakes in northern British Columbia. The owner feels that logging to control a beetle infestation has damaged the scenic value of the area for lodge clients and for local people who fish on the lake.
