To the editor;
I applaud Mary McLennan’s letter of Feb. 5, regarding woodland caribou.
One of my fondest memories is hiking up to Pat’s Pass in Grizzly Den/Raven Lake recreation area (north end of Cariboo mountains) in time to see a small herd of woodland caribou disappear over the pass.
However, I was shocked when I realized who the author of this letter was.
Mary! Was it not you who ridiculed me at a public meeting a few years ago regarding my advocating the preservation of a small patch of rare and unusual chocolate lilies (Fritillaria lanceolata) adjacent to the old parking lot at Barriere Forks Regional Park?
We all know the bug-killed wood in the park needed to be removed. But surely one small patch of rare wildflowers was worth preserving?
Where have all the flowers gone?
