Premier Blaine Higgs has signalled he's open to changing New Brunswick's forest policies ahead of a trip to Washington later this month, where he hopes to bend the ears of key U.S. policy-makers.

The Progressive Conservative premier will use a trip to the National Governors' Association meetings to advance his goal of restoring the province's traditional exemption from softwood lumber duties.
