The B.C. government plans to move back to a more prescriptive approach to forestry -- one that gives First Nations and communities more say on how harvesting is done, and puts more emphasis on forest health.

Katrine Conroy, minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, announced Wednesday that her government has introduced legislation to amend the Forest and Range Practices Act to give the provincial government more direct control over how forestry is done in B.C.
