David Orchard and Stompin’ Tom Connor in Edmonton, 1998. Stompin’ Tom has been a strong supporter of David Orchard for many years and joined the PC party to back him in the 1998 leadership race. During the 2000 election campaign in Prince Albert, SK, Stompin’ Tom took out ads in the local paper urging people to vote for David Orchard.

The Prince Albert Daily Herald published a letter from Stompin’ Tom which read in part: “I have never before come forward to endorse a political candidate, because to me they’ve almost seemed the same; saying the same things and standing for nothing. But this man is different. He fights for Canada and the little guy every day, whether he’s a candidate or not... If I could vote in Prince Albert I would vote for David Orchard. And if I could be there I would even campaign for him. And the only satisfaction I would hope to gain would be in knowing, first, that I truly did something to better my country and secondly, that I stood up in support of a man I truly admire.”

David Orchard visits with Canadian sustainable forestry expert Merv Wilkinson at his 136-acre working forest, Wildwood, near Cedar, Vancouver Island, B.C.

An internationally renowned silvaculture consultant and opponent of clearcutting, Merv Wilkinson has operated a commercial woodlot for over fifty years using sustainable forestry practises. By cutting selectively and applying simple, sound principles of ecoforestry Merv Wilkinson has kept the same volume of trees, as he had when he started and has harvested more timber over the years than was in his forest originally. In 2002 Merv Wilkinson received the Order of Canada in honour of his outstanding achievement in the field of ecoforestry.

Foresters and students from all over the world flock to Merv Wilkinson’s seminars at Wildwood. Photos from some of them can be seen at www.langara.bc.ca/envstudies/es470_merv_wilkinson.htm
