HPBAC and local hearth industry members are fighting a battle in the Comox Valley to save residential woodburning. Local municipalities have imposed restrictions and the regional district is working on recommendations to reduce woodsmoke which are likely to further impact hearth industry members. They are influenced by an anti-woodburning group that has equated residential woodburning and the hearth industry with smoking and cigarette manufacturers. They claim modern woodburning technology is no cleaner than pre-EPA appliances. Contributing to our residential woodburning fund will support the Overturn the Ban campaign and ongoing work to save residential woodburning by raising public awareness.
