68. The Minister may make an order upon observing that forest development activities are carried out unlawfully or in violation of a condition set in a forestry permit, a forest development plan, a contract, an agreement or a standard provided for in or prescribed under this Act.
The order requires the offender to cease the unlawful activities immediately or within a specified time or, if applicable, to submit to the conditions set out in the forestry permit or comply with the development plan or the legal, regulatory or contractual provisions applicable. The order may also require the offender to suspend all or part of a forest development activity determined by the Minister, for the period and on the conditions set by the Minister. The order must include reasons and be served on the offender. It takes effect on the date on which it is served.
If the offender refuses or neglects to comply with the order, the Minister may, in addition to any other recourse, apply to the Superior Court for an injunction ordering the offender to comply.
