MLAs debate support for “value added” manufacturing

During a debate at the Legislature, Doug Routley of Nanaimo North Cowichan, accused the Liberals of letting forestry wither on their watch.

Cowichan Valley’s Bill Routley says that’s a change from the days of one of the Island’s legendary entrepreneurs.
