Coast Forest Products Association congratulated British Columbia’s 36th premier, John Horgan and his newly sworn in cabinet. “We look forward to collaborating and working together with the new provincial government,” the association said in a blog post.

The association gave special acknowledgement to Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development Doug Donaldson, Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Scott Fraser, Minister of Environment & Climate Change Strategy George Heyman, Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology Bruce Ralston, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills & Training Melanie Mark and Parliamentary Secretary for Trade George Chow.

“These ministries are significant to the coastal forest sector in that they strongly influence the sector’s ability to continue to be innovative, expand and find new ways to partner with Indigenous Peoples and ever improve the sustainability of our world class forest management and products. They also affect the advancement of trade agendas and job creation as well as companies’ ability to compete in the global marketplace,” the post reads.
