Let them eat cake

International Trade Minister David Emerson said the recent money transferred to the softwood industry was proof that the softwood deal is working.

How is it working? By driving companies out of business so that the Federal Government has to prop up an industry in tatters?

A weak US market, a high Canadian dollar, over supply of beetle kill logs, and a terrible and unworkable trade deal have the softwood lumber industry in tatters.

David Emerson was the president of Canfor. He knows this. Stop lying.
