"But it’s not just the regulatory environment in B.C. that poses barriers for B.C.’s resource businesses. As former senior bureaucrat Don Wright pointed out last week at a Truck Loggers Association forum, urban British Columbians have become disconnected from these industries and are under the illusion they are no longer important to B.C.’s economy and standard of living."

"There are a few additional facts that readers may be surprised by, the most important of which is that we share the belief that critical at-risk old growth should be protected. We recognize that British Columbians are passionate about protecting at-risk old growth, and there are viable options to find a balance that most people in our province could support."

“There is a growing sense that B.C. doesn't need the resource industries anymore,” Wright said. “I think they're just dead wrong."

“For all the blather about resource based industries no longer being important, they still are what puts bread on Canadians’ table. Energy products, forestry, paper, mining and agriculture – that’s still what drives the Canadian economy."

“We practice forestry at the highest level in this province, so it saddens me to see our provincial governments lack of support, policy changes that add even more cost to our already new status as North Americas high-cost producer and the extremely difficult position that they have placed many first nations for the eventual management of their traditional forest lands.”

Paul Quinn shared his insights yesterday at the TLA Virtual Sessions. ✔

We're looking forward to day 2 and hearing more new perspectives! Working together to discuss the hard topics! 💪

“If that’s what we want, that’s what we’re going to get,” Quinn said Jan. 12. “Simply put, B.C. is becoming un-investable.”

Forest industry analysts paint grim picture for B.C. investment future.

At a global level, BC’s forest industry provides among the best quality and most sought-after fibre in the world. The United States depends on BC softwood lumber to construct new homes, Japan depends on its strength to meet strict building codes in earthquake zones, China greatly desires BC’s pulp, and in Europe, BC’s wood pellets are utilized to power electricity plants in place of coal. The world relies on the quality of BC’s forest products, and consumers demand that these products are sourced in an environmentally and sustainable manner.

The volatility in wood markets and supply chains is ratcheting up again as new developments have caused a resurgence in lumber (and panel) prices since the end of summer. One of the questions that many buyers and sellers keep wondering is, when will the markets return to a more balanced situation without the wild price swings?

For a number of months, we have called for a collective vision for forestry that would address society’s expectations of BC’s forest-management while ensuring the livelihood of workers and resource communities.
