    I got word Friday that a few of the key players in the BC forest products industry are going to liquidate assets after the first of the year. I hope not for you guys but has anyone else heard about this?

    I don't know about Canada but was told the company up in Icy Bay in Alaska just shut down and is moving all their equipment out. I hear the tariffs are killing the markets.
