Such fires are not unusual. Since 2008, fires have consumed 44,000 square kilometers of forest in British Columbia, equal to about one tenth the area of the Province's commercial forest. And there is nothing special about the forests of British Columbia. Wildfires consume millions of hectares of forest across Canada almost every year.
And fires are not the only cause of forest destruction. Each year, Canadians log around a million hectares of forest, of which a significant proportion may be converted to ranchland or remaindered as NSR (not sufficiently restocked) forest land in the continuation of a process begun in 1608 when Samuel Champlain, with the blessing of King Henri Quatre of France, arrived on the shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence to implant a branch of the French nation in North America.
The process of forest destruction is not uniquely Canadian, however. It occurs worldwide, across Eurasia, in Amazonia, and throughout Africa, with losses totaling around 100,000 square kilometers each year.
Does that matter?
Certainly it has huge consequences. Forests account for around 80% of the world's biomass, most of the world's photosynthetic capacity, and provide home to the great majority of the World's plant and animal species.
But here I want to consider just one consequence. How does deforestation affect atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, with whatever consequences that may have for climate.
The atmosphere weights about 10 tons per square meter. Of that mass, carbon dioxide accounts for about 596 parts per million (equal to 416 parts per million by volume). Therefore, over each square metre of Earth's surface, the atmosphere contains approximately six kilograms of carbon dioxide.
The carbon content of mature forests range between one hundred and one thousand tons per hectare, equivalent 40 to 400 kilograms per square meter, being in turn, equivalent to 160 to 1,600 kilograms of carbon dioxide per square meter.
From that, it follows that the destruction of one unit area of forest and the complete transformation of the carbon that it contains into atmospheric carbon dioxide, would have the effect of doubling the atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration over an area between 26 and 266 times are great as the area deforested.
Given the current rate of global deforestation, which is 100,000 square kilometers a year, and assuming an average forest carbon content of 100 tons, it follows that the yearly effect of deforestaton on atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is equivalent to doubling the concentration of carbon dioxide over an area of 6.6 million square kilometers, or 1.2% of the Earth's surface.
Thus, if the process of global deforestation were to continue for the next 100 years, the world would still retain three quarters of its present forest area, but all other things being equal, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration would have doubled.

Town Hall, July 29, 2021: Everybody wrap something around your face again even though they said you wouldn’t need to if you got vaxxed! But they didn’t lie – no, apparently a bunch of people – and not just those evil white nationalist-Christian-gun-Jesus-flag people – are refusing to get the vaccine, and the reason is that they are moral defectives somehow in thrall to Tucker Carlson’s Svengali-like powers of persuasion. You see, the people who won’t get it are stupid people who hate science because they refuse to trust the people who have spent the last year-and-a-half lying to them.
I don’t blame those folks a bit.
Let’s try a thought experiment. Let’s imagine our ruling class was not as utterly corrupt, dishonest, incompetent and downright stupid as it manifestly is. I know that’s hard, but go with me.
This weird new virus appears and starts spreading. Instead of leveraging it to take down Trump, the Democrats appear with the Republican president and GOP leadership to announce they are working together to solve the problem. Imagine that instead of shaming people, first about wearing masks, then about not wearing masks, then about not wearing two masks, then no masks, then masks again, they went with transparency.
“We are not sure how much, if at all, masks work. We’re running test trials to see and we’ll tell you what we find as soon as we have the data. In the meantime, let’s all wear them just in case.” And then, when they ran the studies, they would tell us the answer.
Have you seen any studies about masks? We get a lot of that fascist gnome and others telling us to wear masks (after initially telling us they were useless – remember that memory-holed narrative?) but where’s the actual science?

If You've Had Covid You Won't benefit From Covid "Vaccination" (aka, a dose of blood-clot-inducing spike protein)
MedRXiv: Among the 52238 Cleveland Clinic Health System workers in Ohio on Dec 16, 2020, 1359 (53%) out of 2579 previously infected subjects remained unvaccinated. Not one of these Covid recovered but unvaccinated individuals experienced a SARS-CoV-2 infection during the course of the study, whereas there was a steady increase in infections among previously uninfected subjects who remained unvaccinated.
But despite studies such as the above which prove what any reasonably well informed person would expect, the silly buggers who constitute the public health authorities in Canada and many other countries want to compel injection of an untested so-called vaccine into Covid recovered individuals who are known to have robust and durable Covid immunity.
Those who have had Covid cannot benefit from vaccination, although they may suffer harm, up to and including death.
Why then are governments in Canada and elsewhere seeking to compel those who have had Covid to be "vaccinated"?
And if you have no explanation, why would you vote for the representatives of those governments ever again?
Hell, the Canadian vaccination regime with mixed vaccine types is not even recognized as a valid vaccination by national border control in many countries.
And for those who have had Covid and want recognition of the immunity to re-infection thereby gained, why not lobby your Provincial Health Officer, MLA, MP, Premier, whoever, to provide access to a Covid T-cell test such as this, and to grant Covid recovereds status equivalent to (actually in terms of immunity, superior to) those who have had the so-called vaccine.

"Why would people who have recovered from Covid and have active antibodies, and are therefore immune -- they have natural immunity, why would they be forced to take an experimental vaccine?"
Prof. Montagnier referred to the vaccine program for the coronavirus as an “unacceptable mistake”. Mass vaccinations are a “scientific error as well as a medical error,” he said. “It is an unacceptable mistake. The history books will show that, because it is the vaccination that is creating the variants,” Prof. Luc Montagnier continued.
The prominent virologist explained that “there are antibodies, created by the vaccine,” forcing the virus to “find another solution” or die. This is where the variants are created. It is the variants that “are a production and result from the vaccination.”

The British Medical Journal reports that cases of the common cold in England are occurring at a daily rate of 5.7 per 100,000 of population, or only about one two-hundred and fiftieth of the rate of daily Covid infections, which are reported to number 41,779 (7-day mean) as of July 21, 2021, a rate equivalent to 1412 per 100,000. The implication is that under current conditions of masking, social distancing, pinging, tracking, and tracing, Covid is 248 times as infectious as the common cold, which itself is so infectious that hope of its eradication has been long abandoned.
Thus, as with the common cold, which is attributable to half a dozen viruses including several members of the Corona virus type, we can expect that almost everyone will receive an an infectious dose of the Covid virus. Moreover, given the poor efficacy of the experimental Covid "vaccines " (61% failure rate of the Pfizer vaccine according to a report from Israel), we can expect the majority of the World's population will, in due course, have a Covid infection.
Fortunately, although Covid is apparently the product of gain-of-function lab research, it was evidently not engineered for mass slaughter, since the overall death rate in Britain, for example, is currently little more than one in a thousand cases (46,878 7-day mean daily new cases, versus 55 7-day mean daily deaths).
Worldwide deaths attributable to Covid by the time the virus has reached every inhabitant of the globe could, therefore, total something like seven million, or about the same as would result from an flu pandemic due to a virus of typical virulence infecting every inhabitant of the globe.
The biggest uncertainty about the way Covid will ultimately play out relates to the robustness of the immunity among those who have recovered from Covid. Certainly, they will have much better immunity than that induced by the mRNA so-called vaccines, as they will have durable full-spectrum immunity, including T-cell immunity rather than a limited range of antibodies that dissipate in a matter of months.
That those with a Covid infection have T-cell immunity means that their immune system has a long-lasting memory of the virus, and will initiate a broad range of defensive responses in the event of a future encounter, thereby preventing reinfection.
Moreover, because of the way immune system memory cells are able to identify relatively small parts of a viral genome, T-cell immunity is not lost as a result of minor, or even quite large, viral mutations. Natural immunity, unlike mRNA "vaccine" induced antibodies, is fully effective against those variants or scariants that the media are using to terrorize the population into accepting the more or less useless quackcines.
The outlook, then, is that despite the promotion of novel so-called vaccines, the human population will achieve herd immunity to Covid through infection not vaccination. That is, herd immunity as that term was understood before the World Health Organization (which is heavily funded by the Gates's foundation, which in turn is heavily invested in "vaccine" makers), redefined the term to mean widespread immunity due, not to infection, but only to immunity achieved through vaccination.

But they kept them home from school.
They made them wear masks.
And now they're determined to inject them with an experimental vaccine that hasn't prevented thousands dying from Covid.
Other than for killing substantial numbers of people, the "vaccine" appears to be useless.
Meantime, most Brits are self-isolating in fear and trepidation, not.

NY Intelligencer: Children wear masks at the pool and in school, but they aren’t at risk and never were
The British Medical Journal, November 13, 2020 (Reproduced without permission): Congratulations on your editorial highlighting the depressing levels of “corruption” taking place in the name of “beating the pandemic”. Scrutiny certainly deserves to be directed towards conflicts of interest within members of SAGE and scientific/medical advisors as examined by Dr Zoe Harcombe PhD, a Cambridge mathematics/economics graduate[1,2]. Aided by mainstream media and censorship by tech giants, this group controls the scientific narrative on which Government action has been based, even when the “science” relied upon is at complete odds with the views of many other world-class scientists.
Suppression of science and lack of open debate has impinged enormously on three issues of fundamental significance. Firstly, public fear of Covid has been elevated to levels that are completely out of proportion to the actual danger. A recent peer-reviewed paper by one of the world’s most cited and respected scientist, Professor John Ioannidis of Stanford University, quotes an infection fatality rate (IFR) for Covid of 0.00-0.57% (0.05% for under 70s), far lower than originally feared and no different to severe flu . This paper is published on WHO’s own Bulletin but ignored by UK mainstream media.
Secondly, although deaths are currently running at normal levels, fear is being driven by inflation of Covid “cases” caused by inappropriate use of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test [4-7]. This test is hypersensitive and highly susceptible to contamination, particularly when not processed with utmost rigour by properly trained staff. Case inflation also occurs from use of excessive number of rounds of amplification cycles (termed CT) which amplifies non-infectious viral fragments and cross-reacting nucleotides from non-Covid coronaviruses/other respiratory viruses. These become mis-labelled as Covid. Even Dr Fauci confirms that a positive result using CT above 34 is invalid (Twitter thread, Jeff Nelson @vegsource 30 October 2020) but in the UK CTs may go up to 45, as confirmed by Professor Carl Heneghan of Oxford University’s Center for Evidence-Based Medicine: (House of Commons Science & Tech Committee, 17 Sep, 2020 YouTube.) An obvious improvement is to immediately halt any use of CTs above 34 and ensure that for CTs between 25 and 34, two consecutive positive results are required before confirming a case as Covid positive.
According to Professor Brookes, a Health Data Scientist from the University of Leicester, the UK’s official data shows no excess deaths due to respiratory infections this season (talkRadio, 'The number of people dying today is the same as it would be any other year', 17 November 2020 YouTube). Instead, excess total deaths have been driven by lack of treatment due to hospital closure/lockdowns and have occurred mostly at home. Whilst there is no question that the first wave of Covid, a then novel virus, was lethal to many, there is no sound evidence of any second wave.
The third and possibly the most consequential suppression of science relates to the narrative that people do not develop immunity following a Covid infection. We know that immunity to SARS-CoV-1 is very durable, persisting for at least 12-17 years [8-10]. Immunologists know that immunity to SARS-Cov-2 is no different. This is confirmed by many eminent scientists including Beda M Stadler, the former Director of the Institute for Immunology at the University of Bern and Professor Emeritus (Ivor Cummins, Ep91 Emeritus Professor of Immunology...Reveals Crucial Viral Immunity Reality, 28 July 2020, YouTube), and Sucharit Bhakdi, former Chair of Medical Microbiology at the University of Mainz . The human population has encountered and co-existed with myriad coronaviruses throughout evolution. Most of us therefore have cross-reacting T-cells, B cells and antibodies derived from encounters with cold coronaviruses that can recognise SARS-CoV-2 [12-14], in the same way that people “immunised” with cowpox became less susceptible to serious illness from smallpox - as Edward Jenner discovered in 1796. This is why we do not generally die from cold coronaviruses and precisely why so many of us were not susceptible to falling severely ill from Covid earlier this year. Even the chance of passing Covid to your spouse at the height of the pandemic was as low as 17%! [15 ].
In line with expectations, mediators of robust long-term immune memory, memory B and T-cells have both been firmly established to be produced following even a mild a Covid infection [17,18]. Pouncing on a handful of examples of apparent second Covid infections is irresponsible of the media but suits the false  narrative that falling antibody levels lead to loss of immunity. The evidence that immunity lasts is all around us - if this were not so we would see as many people dying of and falling seriously ill with Covid now as we did in March/April, including doctors and nurses.
Pfizer’s vaccination trial data provides further confirmation of the now low rates of prevalence. 94 participants were apparently infected based on PCR positive results (of unknown CT so we cannot be sure they are all genuinely Covid). The placebo group must comprise around 22,000, half the total trial number. This yields an infection rate of, at the very most, 0.4% and makes the chances of escaping infection greater than 99.6% during the trial period. The vaccine might well be 90% “effective” - although we are yet to learn exactly how this is measured - but the risk of contracting Covid in the first place is self-evidently low. The risk of both contracting and dying from Covid using an IFR of 0.57 (the worst case) was a mere 0.002% based on pessimistic assumptions. Of course, the elderly and other high-risk categories face greater risk, but it is still far less than it was early this year and it will continue to reduce as population immunity builds further.
Hijacking of science by vested interests has resulted in immeasurable harms to society. Lockdowns, meant to save lives but being pushed by narratives that have little basis in science, have themselves caused loss of life, livelihoods, dignity, and humanity. We need to ask how we have got to this sorry state. It seems that only the extrication of science from industry by introduction of independent sources of funding for scientific research institutions, perhaps by levying a brand-new tax on industry, will allow the nation’s best scientists an independent voice and put an end to the suppression of good science, together with the mistrust and conflict it generates.

Maxime Bernier, has served in Canada's government as Minister of state for small business, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Chair of the National Defense Select Committee.
To destroy one's own cultural heritage indeed seems monstrous. But there is another consequence of mass immigration that that seems even more monstrous.
Furthermore, the influx of migrants is the chief cause of Canada's continued low fertility rate.
Mass immigration drives:
* competition for, and hence the cost of, housing;
* demand for, and hence the cost in taxes of, infrastructure such as schools and hospitals;
* competition for jobs, thus lowering wages.
By lowering incomes and raising the cost of buying a home, mass immigration thus delays family formation, which in turn, suppresses the fertility rate thereby keeping the historic Canadian nation on track for extinction.
