On Friday, July 22, forestry workers from various sawmills and pulpmills from two major unions, the PPWC (Pulp, Paper, and Woodworkers of Canada) and Unifor, were joined by community members, politicians,first nations, and environmentalists in Port Alberni in a rally for sustainable forest policy in BC. The speakers called for an end to raw log exports, the protection of old-growth forests, support for First Nations sustainable economic development, and for incentives and regulations to support a sustainable, value-added, second-growth forest industry. Thanks to Cam Shiell and Arnold Bercov of the PPWC for organizing the rally!
