Foreman Says These Jobs Are Going Boys...

...And They Ain't Comin' Back.

Paul Willcocks has the story of what just may be the end of the forest industry as we know it in some parts of British Columbia:

"The job losses in (the town of) Mackenzie over the last five months are the equivalent of something like 220,000 layoffs in Greater Vancouver. That kind of economic and human catastrophe in the Lower Mainland would get some major government action....."

One would hope so.

Except that, well, we've got a Convention Center, an Elevated Train Line that skirts the Creme, an Art Gallery and a Stadium roof to pore money into .

And that costs billions.
