We have a variety of instruments available to us. In the immediate term, the most important value is to protect the workers who will be affected by layoffs. We don't know how many there will be. We'll have a better idea after the duties in June are announced. We believe there are adjustments that can be made to federal programs that will cushion the impact on workers. We also know that producers will have very difficult decisions to make. We think there are programs that can be made available and are already available to those producers.
We believe that with the co-operation and collaboration of our provincial counterparts, we will look at ways that we can work together to do as much as we reasonably can under the circumstances to protect those who will lose their jobs, to help companies cope with this very difficult moment for their bottom line, and also, importantly, to help communities that are affected. Those of you who represent rural ridings know how important the forestry sector is, yes, for the workers; yes, for the companies, but also for the communities themselves.
We will be working together with the provinces on each one of those fronts.
