A second public information meeting is being held tonight (Thursday, June 19) for the proposal to remove a road from Sasquatch Park.

The meeting will be held in the Fraser Room at the Coast Hotel in Chilliwack, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The first meeting was held in Agassiz on May 29 and was attended by Tamihi Logging, Seabird First Nation, BC Parks, several local politicians and residents.

Tamihi and Seabird are hoping to have a roadway removed from Sasquatch Park to allow them to apply for a woodlot license in an area that adjoins the park. The land is bound by the park, steep terrain, and transmission lines.
