Even though the forest industry’s share of New Brunswick’s GDP has been declining for decades – accounting for only five per cent and about 12,000 direct jobs today – forests are a motherhood issue within the province. As noted in part 1 of this series, the provincial government actually spends more on forest management than it earns from royalties garnered from this sector.

J.D. Irving controls almost 4.4 million acres of combined Crown and its own forests (or about 25 per cent of the province’s entire land mass). They also own three paper mills and eight sawmills.

If you are not working to protect hunting, then you are working to destroy it.

They ask/demand/threaten the government/politicians for what they want, be it:

changes in legislation ie:forestry act

reduced municipal taxes  ie: St. John and Halifax 

non-repayable loans

who the government hires or fires

 

the list goes on and on and government bends to their every wish and tax payers get bent over too :blink:

Months after her firing, she's being recognized for "her outstanding contribution to public health and preventive medicine" by the Public Health Physicians of Canada.

Cleary is one of two people to receive the group's President's Award.
