OFIA against proposed forest tenure reform

A coalition of northern businesses, municipal leaders, unions and forestry groups are against the province's forest tenure proposal. The coalition includes the Ontario Forest Industry Association and President Jamie Lim says they're dead set against the initiative. Lim adds its going to have a negative impact on the industry driving up costs and creating uncertainty. The forest tenure proposal is expected to be approved by the government sometime this year.
