Teal Cedar Products Ltd. (“Teal”) appealed a stumpage determination issued by the Regional Appraisal Coordinator, Coast Forest Region, Ministry of Forests, for a cutting permit held by Teal.

By consent of the parties, the Commission ordered that the stumpage determination be rescinded and remitted back to the Regional Appraisal Coordinator for re-determination, using Shoal Island as the appraisal log dump for the purposes of calculating the estimated wining bid and the tenure obligation adjustment under the Coast Appraisal Manual.

Accordingly, the appeal was allowed.
