Port McNeill, located on Northern Vancouver Island is, in a word, idyllic. Not unlike many other small towns in British Columbia, it was founded and continues to grow today as a burgeoning community due largely to the forestry industry - a rich legacy that literally built the socioeconomic backbone of our province. In this episode, Forest Works has a candid discussion with Gaby Wickstrom, Mayor of Port McNeill,  that unveils some of the unique challenges, triumphs and fragility facing “Industry Towns” in BC.
