On this week’s show ForestWorks’ speaks with Conrad Browne, Teal Jones’ director of Indigenous Partnership and Strategic Relations. Conrad brings us an important perspective on the year of protests on southern Vancouver Island – the company, the logging, the First Nations, and the misinformation. Teal Jones is a value-added manufacturer that employs more than 1,000 British Columbians, most of those in milling and manufacturing. It does not ship any raw logs. Most of its logging on Vancouver Island is in second-growth, and the company has invested millions to build a mill specialized in maximizing value from smaller second-growth trees. It has a history of respectful engagement with First Nations in whose territories it works. So, why is the company facing blockades? Listen to find out.
