Our experience with recent versions of the softwood lumber agreement is that each time we go through a softwood lumber agreement, smaller companies end up dying and going out of business and we get a reduced number of larger companies, so we have fewer and fewer corporate holders of the woodlands producing softwood lumber in B.C. Now we're struggling with finding people. The uncertainty of investment here is what causes us to lack that investment in new manufacturing.
