Like any business, we need to make sure that we have a diversity of products coming out of our forests. Our forests produce things such as slough for flowers and mushrooms for export. People use our forests for recreation and tourism. We produce solid wood products, pulp and paper products, and secondary products. We also produce logs. That's just part of the mix.
I spoke to you about regulatory constraints and the ability for a CEO to go in front of a board and make a case for investment. There are two factors that are extremely challenging in British Columbia, especially on the coast. One, do you have access to the fibre and can you guarantee you're going to get it? The second is the cost of that fibre.
We need to be working together as governments and industry, along with our other stakeholders, to address our cost issues and the investment issues, because if you want to reduce the amount of log exports, what you need to do is to increase the amount of investment in both the primary and secondary manufacturing businesses. If you can't attract the investment in the manufacturing side of the business, then you're going to see a continuation of log exports. It's a very complicated issue.
