Mr. Brian L. Gardiner (Prince George-Bulkley Valley):

Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Forestry.

Canada's forest industry is in transition as all levels of government, industry and the environmental community try to come to grips with the demands on our forests. Of particular concern is the future of forestry industry jobs.

While governments create, rightly so, parks to protect the future of our forests and the special places they represent, and given the lack of any specific federal-provincial program to assist workers in the transition from these forest jobs to new employment, will the minister commit to bring forward such a program to assist forest workers who lose their jobs because of a very legitimate policy initiative by government to create parks?

Hon. Frank Oberle (Minister of Forestry):

Madam Speaker, my hon. friend knows my views on this subject. The potential for workers who are being displaced through the rationalization and modernization of mills, all things being equal, find an easy transition to the management of the resource itself as we shift to more intensive, more integrated management regimes in forestry, regimes that respect all of the other values, not just the timber values, that we have previously managed.

It is in that area that the federal government has established new arrangements with the provinces. We are working co-operatively with the provinces and with industry to make this transition possible.
