West Kootenays — Proposed logging above Summit Lake Provincial Park, that could have crushed hundreds of blue-listed toads while destroying their habitat, has been stopped until winter.  The decision comes as the result of ongoing complaints by local residents, environmental groups and the Okanagan First Nation.  The decision was apparently made by the logging company — the Nakusp and Area Community Forest (NACFOR) — but was communicated to the Valhalla Wilderness Society (VWS) by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO).
