NEWS: New York Forest Bill Would Wrongly Impact Canada

During our discussion with Derek Nighbor, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada, an opinion piece published in the Times Union newspaper was referenced.

You can find the piece at the link below to learn more about this key issue.

As the quotation below makes clear, the legislation as written is highly unfavourable to Canada’s forestry industry – a critical component of our economy.

"... the sweeping legislation also stands to impact forest product imports from among the most sustainably managed forests in the world, including those in Canada, Sweden and Finland. As currently written, the bill would also clearly violate trade rules between two of our world's most trusted trading partners."
