3. Meeting Topics

a. BCTS Stakeholder Project – Enrique Sanchez

     – ACTION: asking that individual stakeholder groups arrange to sit with himself and Andrew to identify each areas of

       interest and expectations in the Chwk Forest District. This will help with communication of proposed harvesting

       plans and decide how to mediate expectations of all stakeholders. We should outline Core areas and any outlying as

       well. Set up an appt with Andrew at Andrew.Boxwell@gov.bc.ca 604-702-5747.

     – suggestion that CRAG send Enrique and Andrew an updated CRAG contact list. MOF would like to share this

       contact list with their contractors who will in turn contact the group that may be impacted by harvesting work. There

       was consensus that would be okay.
