To Herb's point on industrial logging companies' timber licence "assets" that they can trade as private assets, the most outrageous recent example is Canfor selling its large inactive renewable timber licence in the Fort Nelson timber supply area to Peak Renewables, a producer of wood pellets for export, at a windfall profit of $30 million for the sole benefit of Canfor shareholders. Katrine Conroy's approval is pending. No tenure transfer has been denied under section 54 of the Forest Act to date.

Thank you so much for the invitation to tonight's discussion, and to Herb Hammond for a terrific presentation. I have to run, but look forward to reading all the Q & A that followed.

I am wondering what is Herb's view on the more aggressive form of "fuel reduction for wildfire protection" using commercial equipment now, logging the mature trees for the mills, happening in urban-rural watershed interfaces around the province eg. Forest Enhancement Society, etc.
