Lumber Company convicted for violations of the Forestry Act


Sexton Lumber Company has been convicted for four violations of the Forestry Act. Earlier this month the company appeared in Provincial Court at Grand Falls-Windsor where it pled guilty to the violations.


The company was found guilty of one charge of neglect to perform an obligation imposed by an order of a forestry official and three charges of failing to comply with the terms and conditions stated on their cutting permits. The company received a total fine of $3,100 plus a 30 per cent victim surcharge fee.


The Department of Fisheries, Forestry and Agriculture’s Resource Enforcement Division conducted the investigation.
