The UHA membership includes most participants in the fishery,
namely the 55 license holders, crew members from harvesting vessels, and
all of the major wholesalers of geoduck in British Columbia.
Initially, the UHA contracted an independent company to carry out a geoduck
dockside monitoring program in 1989 to provide the financially strapped
Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) with data from the fishery.
This monitoring program was an essential component of the switch to an
individual quota (IQ) fishery.
Since then, the UHA has voluntarily expanded their role in co-management.
Thirdly, the UHA funds four full time biologists (two consultants and
two DFO positions), a number of part-time consultants and DFO contract
positions, a position at Environment Canada to ensure that paralytic shellfish
poison (PSP) testing is completed and pays for extensive water quality
and PSP testing.

Our Goal is to see safe, efficient and comfortable forced air
heating and ventilation systems installed in dwellings in British Columbia.We
believe that only through the establishment and enforcement of minimum
standards will the public be assured that such systems are indeed installed.
The HVCI Association of BC came into being as a result of a fundamental
disagreement with the National HRAI Association.
The Executive of the BC Chapter of that national organization had developed
and administered a province-wide training course on the unique BC Building
Code, Section 9.32 Ventilation requirements.
Our membership hovers around the two hundred mark, making us one of the
largest provincial trade associations in BC.

Carter passed the Public Utilities Regulatory Act to harness the renewable

The first major policy issue tackled by the IPPBC was electricity export.
The IPPBC's report played a key role in the export of electricity being
accepted in principle by government.

The Western Association of Salvors and Handloggers (WASH) is
a new organisation designed to address some long-existing problems in
the log salvage sector as seen by the log salvors.
For four decades salvors have been working under regulations that are
n ot in their best interests, resulting in a climate of frustration and
conflict between salvors and the Forest Industry.
The practise resulted in lost income to the salvors and a increase of
smaller and lower quality logs which could not be economically salvaged,
and an equally important cost to the economy, the environment, and public
Percentages of the value of marketable logs currently going back to the
companies under the No Mark Visible Fund should be us ed to subsidize
payment to salvors for unmerchantable material at pulp prices and to subsidize
the cost of utilizing or safely disposing of other materials.

Pellet fuel is made mainly of sawdust, shavings and fines leftover
after processing trees for lumber and other wood products.
Currently, pellet fuel can be purchased at stores that sell building supplies,
pet and farm supplies, and hearth appliances.
The main difference between the two is that the standard grade contains
more inorganic ash than the premium grade.
Pellet manufacturers are encouraged to label their fuel and to have it
tested on a regular basis to ensure the protection of consumers.
A pellet appliance is capable of generating 10,000-500,000 BTU of heat.
The cost of pellet fuel may depend on the geographic region where it is
sold, and the current season.
