Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The LetKbrtdge Herald THIRD SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, June 13, 1973 PAGES 29-36 B.C. convicts help build a provincial park HANEY, B.C. (CP) Thirty prisoners from the Hancy Correctional Institute call it the Slave Lake project. But, along with the 12-hour shifts of hard labor, prisoners get weekend passes, the privi- lege of camping by the lakeside in unlocked trailers and what one prison official describes as some of the best food around. The prisoners are logging a forest of dead exposed by the low water level of Stave Lake, which was created in 191I1 when a dam and power plant were built near this Fraser Val- ley community. The salvageable logs are sent to a sawmill built by the con- victs 20 miles away and lumb- er is supplied to government agencies at low cost. The Stave Lake work crew is clearing the lake with a view to creating a recreational area under the direction of the Brit- ish Columbia Forest Service. The workers are paid a dollar a day. Bill Davis, forestry liaison of- ficer, says in about hree years a channel will be marked with log booms and boaters will be able to navigate without diffi- culty through what now is the tangle of stumps and dead- heads. Mr. Davis said prisoners with the Stave Lake logging exper- ience behind tfoem can expect to find goad job prospects when released. He estimates the clearing project will take another five or six years. Some of the trees are tackled by workers on rafts with chain saws. Others a-e blasted and dragged into piles at the camp. Warden J. M. McHale, who supervises the work camp, says although the work is hard, the convicts are enthusiastic be- cause they are working toward a goal of a provincial park set- ting. Mr. McHale said there have been no escapes from the camp since its opening two joars ago. OUTSIDE! INSIDE! ALL AROUND YOUR HOME! Brighten up your life!
