Our forests are part of our identity and our future. Instead of back-room deals with J. D. Irving, the Green Party will create a new Forests Sustainability Act in consultation with all New Brunswickers, one that respects our treaty relationships with First Nations.
The Green Party will cancel the resource giveaway to Irving. We will restore the status of private woodlot owners as the primary source of wood supply. We will ensure that Crown lands are managed to sustain the Acadian forest while providing more work and opportunity for our local communities. A diverse Acadian forest can sustain water and wildlife, and support a diverse forest economy.
