B.C. forestry companies say proposed legislation that would give government a veto over the transfer of timber cutting rights has put the entire forest industry “on pause.”

As Bill 22 wends its way through the legislature, several forestry companies have written the government to make the case that what is bad for them is also bad for the B.C. economy and thousands of people who rely on it for their livelihood, said Liberal MLA and forestry critic John Rustad.
