“Getting Back to Balance”

“The global recession is now more serious than anybody expected, and will be
deeper than any downturn we have seen in our careers. No industry is exempt,
and surviving the downturn will be a shared challenge. But as the world economy
strives to restore a sense of balance, there are still opportunities that the
Canadian forest industry can take advantage of.”
