I totally agree with Bill Errico's letter regarding woodlots on Gambier Island (Gambier Woodlot Program 'Makes Sense,' July 24).
If these logging permits were awarded to a major timber harvester such as Weyerhauser, I would share the concerns of the opposing vocal group on the island. But small woodlots are different. This group of one-dimensional conservationists are exaggerating worst-case scenarios, and a lot of their strident scare language is being economical with the truth. This issue deserves clear, pragmatic consideration. There is no place for activist rhetoric.
