CEP members occupy Cabinet Members, MPs offices

In addition to occupying Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s office, members of the CEP are also occupying the offices of

* Jay Hill (Prince George-Peace River)
* John Duncan (Vancouver Island North)
* Lawrence Cannon (Pontiac)
* Josée Verner (Louis-Saint-Laurent)
* Jean-Pierre Blackburn (Jonquiere-Alma)
* Mike Allen (Tobique-Mactaquac)

“The federal government’s aloof attitude toward forest community’s borders on contempt,” says CEP President Dave Coles. “In the face of the pain and suffering created by 55,000 job losses in the last two years, the government has done nothing.

“Today we are taking a stand — we are fighting for the future of our families, our communities and our industry.”
