Are we smart enough to see?

Will we biblically, for a mess of potage, sell our inherited legacy?

To the Editor,

Will we biblically, for a mess of potage, sell our inherited legacy?

Do we still swallow slogans “Forests forever” and “It’s growing faster than we’re cutting it?”

Do we know when to cut back and is too late to quit?

Will the logging lobbies guarantee adequate inventory for our surviving wood industry?

Should stumpage fee ensure that woodworkers like public service, pensions see?

This was once passed at a convention of the NDP that later removed clause of appurtenancy that tied manufacturing to forestry and opened the door to exporting raw log tree.

Are woodworkers lower class, never destined to get government’s indexed pension parity?

Can we continue to be hewers of wood and drawers of water to the same degree?

When they export the last tree, will global warming exact a costly penalty?
