Softwood Peace In Our Time Watch Continued

Yes, the lumber agreement has many friends, but not many in this country:
Canadian industry leaders, during a business panel at the forum, said their fortunes are worse off now than before the agreement was signed...."I guess the biggest frustration from our perspective is that the federal government views the signing of the agreement as the end of the process. It was just the beginning," Perkins said. The government has offered minimal help to industry in interpreting the agreement, resolving tax issues. In the six months since the pact was signed, "they went to ground ... they disappeared."
"They went to ground, they disappeared". Sounds like a good attack ad tag line to me. NDP campaign folks, please take note.
