PRINCE GEORGE, BC, April 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Unifor and other organizations
representing the forestry industry will be hosting a community
discussion on the future of Northern British Columbia's forests.
The discussion about BC's forestry industry comes on the heels of a
$500-million investment in New Brunswick's forestry plan and the

"How we manage our forests will determine prosperity and sustainability

the Unifor national president. "We can't wait for government to
act—northern communities are taking charge and demanding action."
