Drama unfolded large in downtown Vancouver last week, where was being held the Union of British Columbia Municipalities annual meeting. Mayors and political leaders from across the province were greeted by a convoy of 230 unloaded logging trucks arriving Friday morning to large crowds of surprised, and cheering, onlookers.
The issue of reduced timber supply is hitting especially rural areas hard, so log truck operators decided to make a statement directly in the faces of decision-makers. At the same time, the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development released the “State of British Columbia Forests 2018”, which provides full data update for the harvest, manufacture, and export of BC wood fibre resource: Economic State of B.C.'s Forest Sector 2018.
