Doherty Returns From Washington

Cariboo-Prince George MP, Todd Doherty has just returned to Ottawa from a three-day trip to Washington as part of a non-partisan Softwood Lumber Task Force. He says they 85 meetings and says there are some real champions of a negotiated settlement south of the 49th. The message is that U.S. consumers will suffer the longer there is no softwood deal.
“The challenge is the U.S. consumers don’t have an organized voice similar to the U.S Lumber Coalition,” he says.
It’s a message consumers and home builders in the U.S. should be shouting to government loud and clear.
