Will the NDP stand up for BC Forestry Jobs ?

August 30, 2019

All across our riding there are families that have food on the table tonight because of the jobs that come from the forestry industry. We know that after years of a Liberal government that has failed to negotiate a new softwood lumber deal, thousands of forest workers across BC have lost their jobs.

Now we see a BC NDP MLA, one responsible for forests, say there are “too many mills” in BC.

I am calling on NDP MP Ricard Cannings and NDP leader Jagmeet Singh to condemn the comments of their provincial colleague and stand by forest workers in our riding.

I can commit to every single person in South Okanagan-West Kootenay that depends on the forest sector, I have your back.
