In a historic announcement last October, the BC government granted the Klahoose First Nation and the Cortes Island Community Forest Co-Op a Community Forest tenure on 3,700 acres of so-called “Crown” or public lands on Cortes—a deal 20 years in the making.

Filmmaker and new Common Sense Canadian contributor Daniel Pierce shares a short excerpt from his forthcoming documentary, Heartwood, on the conflict over old growth logging and possibility of a sustainable alternate model taking root on Cortes.
