Finally, a government fine that approaches a penalty worthy of the offense (although it wd be interesting to know what profits the company got from the felled trees). Thanks, Cal.

Good for them! More governments should follow their lead. Great way to raise revenue!

Great news! The best punishment for greedy corporations, which value money above all else, is to hit them where it hurts them most --their profit margin.

Good. I hope that this will deter others and help keep the remaining forests standing.

Great but too late, nothing will bring back all the logged trees, but it's a start to defend our forests.
