Canadian Women in Timber - 19th AGM Hosts Minister Pat Bell

Working in resource communities across British Columbia, the Canadian Women in Timber (CWIT) have a mandate to promote forest awareness through education. Volunteers have shared the message of sound forest management and wise use of BC’s forest resources for nineteen years. To celebrate nineteen years of forest education, the CWIT hosted a public luncheon in conjunction with their annual general meeting in Richmond, BC. Minister of Forests and Range, Pat Bell gave the keynote luncheon address. “We were thrilled to have the minister speak to our members and guests”, said Sandy McKellar, who chairs the non-profit society. “He took the opportunity to launch a new education tool for BC high schools that teaches students about wood products and markets.”
