KAMLOOPS  —  A local nominee for next May's provincial election has been named his party's forestry critic.

Green Party leader Andrew Weaver yesterday named Dan Hines the Green Party's forestry critic. Hines is running as a candidate in the Kamloops-North Thompson riding.

Weaver said there has to be a new approach to forest practices in the province, and that would include constructive collaboration with First Nations and communities affected by the forest sector.

Hines will be responsible for holding the government to task on forestry issues and will facilitate public engagement on the issue for the party as it develops its platforms leading up to the election.
