Truckers hauling logs are among the groups benefiting from a provincial promise of $50 million to help increase the supply of fibre. Premier David Eby said the money will help get low-value wood from remote areas to pulp and paper mills.

“We know that access to fibre is one of the most critical challenges facing the industry and we’re working hard to find new sources,” Eby said Thursday (Jan. 19).
