State Sen. Liz Krueger suggests in a commentary ("New York has a role to play in protecting the world's forests," April 20) that New York has a role in supporting sustainable forest management. It’s a responsibility we embrace across Canada’s publicly owned, working forests.

The senator cites forest practices in Indonesia as a reason for introducing legislation that targets “forest risk commodities." However, the senator’s bill misses the mark as the sweeping legislation also stands to impact forest product imports from among the most sustainably managed forests in the world, including those in Canada, Sweden and Finland.
