We must adapt and change old forestry policies to be competitive. We must form new partnerships and new ways to get finished product to market

It’s time for BC’s old school NDP and Liberal parties to acknowledge one of British Columbia’s oldest industries is in trouble; one whose incredible value was clearly demonstrated by being included in one of the murals on the upper rotunda in the BC legislature.

Conservative BC leader Trevor Bolin today stated, “BC’s forest industry has been plagued by decades of government mismanagement.”

He continued saying, “Mills have been left with little choice but to implement shift curtailments, and far too many have been forced to close, at the cost of thousands of high-paying BC jobs.” 

We must adapt.  We must change old policies to be competitive, and we must form new partnerships and new ways to get finished products to market”, said the leader of BC’s Conservatives.

The following are improvements Conservative BC MLA’s will push for, to enhance the long-term viability of BC’s forest industry

  1. Create a committee tasked with finding new ways to revitalize and enhance BC’s forest industry -- through a Made-In BC plan – with representation from industry, labour, First Nations, and local and regional governments

  2. Work with the forest industry to open new markets for finished products, utilizing BC ports, which will provide new jobs through-out the province

  3. Stumpage rates will be calculated and set monthly; giving us the same kind of competitive advantage that we see in Alberta

  4. Focusing on finished products instead of raw log exports creating more jobs right here at home.
