Save Our Holmes

Protection & Preservation of Mt. Holmes & Mt. Good In Youbou, BC

Your voice and your action can make a difference—but time is not on our side.

Right now, Mosaic Forestry Management, Western Canada’s largest forestry company, is planning to log the steep slopes directly behind the homes of Youbou families.

Did you know?

  • Our watershed is on private property. Mosaic owns it. Logging puts streams and creeks at risk of redirection and disruption. The increase in debris and soil interferes with critical fish habitat.
  • Our community has first hand knowledge of the destructive force of logs, mud and rocks. The risk of slides increases 6 to 9 times after slopes have been logged.
  • Our neighbours, the wildlife, have safety, food and room to roam in the undisturbed forests that begin a few steps from our back yards.
  • Our lives have been enriched by the beauty surrounding us. Tourism is a growing industry in the Cowichan Valley, but the huge clear cut just across the lake is a reminder that it could all be gone in a few years.

Do you believe large outside corporations should decide the fate of our community?

You and I know better: there is no justification for the loss of our community's natural environment and natural habitat.

The GOOD news is if you answered NO to that question, there is something YOU can do about it!
