Forestry leader honoured by UN in Canada for boreal agreement

Canada’s top logger is to be honoured for saving trees by the United Nations Association in Canada at a gala dinner Wednesday night in Vancouver. Avrim Lazar, president of the Forest Products Association of Canada, is to receive the honour for his role in reaching an agreement with environmental groups to marry higher environmental values and habitat preservation without giving up logging in Canada’s boreal forest. The forest stretches from northern B.C. to Newfoundland.
