Logging roads built in Quebec’s Montagne Blanches region managed by Resolute Forest Products are a violation of the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement (CBFA) says Greenpeace. The organisation released GPS-tagged photos of the logging activity in critical caribou habitat today, prompting Greenpeace to leave the CBFA.

“The Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement was a framework for cooperation whereby companies like Resolute Forest Products agreed to stay out of areas of important habitat,” said Stephanie Goodwin, Greenpeace Canada forest coordinator. “When the biggest logging company in the Boreal Forest goes back on its word to stay out of critical habitat, it signals the Agreement has broken down.”
