Panel: Alan Andison

Keywords:  Forest Act – s. 105; Interior Appraisal Manual – s. 2.5(2)(b); consent order

William James Hadden appealed a stumpage rate determination with respect to a cutting permit issued under a woodlot licence.  Before the stumpage rate was determined, Mr. Hadden had delivered a notice of intention to the Ministry of Forests to change the adjusting stumpage rate to a fixed stumpage rate.  By consent of the parties, the Commission ordered that the determination be rescinded and the stumpage rate be fixed at the rate in effect three weeks after Mr. Hadden delivered the notice of intention to change to a fixed stumpage rate.

Accordingly, the appeal was allowed.
