The tiny community of Nakusp, B-C is feeling squeezed by an issue that divides residents between protecting the area's rare toad population and saving forestry jobs. Kootenay West New Democrat Katrine (kah-TREE'-nah) Conroy says every summer tourists come to Nakusp to safely transport migrating toads across the highway, but now many community members feel logging threatens the tiny amphibians.
