  • March 12, 2019 Passed Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Yellowknife South, that Bill 44, Forest Act, be read for the second time. This bill establishes a new framework for the management and protection of forests in the Northwest Territories. It sets out some general requirements with respect to the sustainable use of forests and forest resources. It enables the protection of forests through wildfire management and prevention and includes provisions to respond to forest insects, disease, and invasive plant species. The bill also authorizes the use of forest resources through forest harvesting agreements, permits, and licences. The right to appeal certain decisions is granted. Finally, an enforcement scheme is created in order to ensure respect for the new management and protection framework. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
