To be more precise, Christy Clark-Campbell's government's job-killing policies that have lead to the export of 40% of all the timber harvested in coastal British Columbia* this year as....
And that, to put it mildly, does not make the folks who make their living cutting and processing our homegrown timber happy.
Because it means that their jobs, which have been dissolving, Houdini's box-like, right-in-front of their eyes ever since the Golden Era first began, are now disappearing from Lotusland faster than even poor Mr. Owen Nolan.
And no amount of lipstick applied to any spur-line pig is going to change that real-life reality that really and truly affects families.
Which is something our local Sawmill correspondent, Mr. Beer 'N Hockey, makes abundantly clear.
(Please note: Because it speaks to both the truth and the rage of the thing, Mr. Beer's missive is neither for the faint of heart or the delicate-eared)
*Thanks to reader Tony M. for correcting me....I had originally written '40% of all the timber harvested in the entire province'....But you could argue that 40% of the coast's cut this year is actually worse given that that timber has less of the beetle-infested junk in it (ie. one could argue that we are sending out all our best logs for, essentially, no public return).
And Laila, thanks to Mr. Beer's prodding as well, is all over this one.
