Re: Time for investments in forests, BC Views, Aug. 21.
It’s time to obey our own provincial laws, let alone invest more into our forests.
Our federal government has made it clear that it’s not going to accept as good enough one’s unrelenting efforts at finding paying forestry work when applying for EI.
This, regardless of the fact that the BC Liberal government has – by its notoriously pathetic non-maintenance of B.C.’s forests – broken provincial laws stating that it must adequately maintain a healthy forestry sector.
Sure, the B.C. government finds no problem when it comes to razing large swaths of trees for countless square kilometres, but everything else has gone to hell, including what once was reliable forestry work.
