Forestry Transition Team Update

NOTE: The following is a statement from Kelliann Dean, deputy minister of Intergovernmental Affairs and Trade, and forestry transition team lead.

The forestry transition team was formed to collaborate on ways to support the forestry sector and the workers and businesses connected to the industry. This is not a table to discuss the future of Northern Pulp. That is the company’s issue. Robin Wilber is focused on options for Northern Pulp. That is not part of the transition team’s mandate therefore he is no longer part of the transition team.

Mr. Wilber is still welcome to share ideas with transition team members on support for businesses and workers, and moving the industry forward.
