Timber protest


A group of aboriginal Canadians have hit out at a logging company in Ontario which supplies timber for the production of engineered timber joists.

The people of Grassy Narrows First Nation claim they are unable to hunt and trap animals on their traditional territory because of forest clearance by logging company Abitibi-Consolidated, which supplies timber fibre to Weyerhaeuser for manufacture of its Trus Joist engineered timber joists.
