VANCOUVER, BC – Canadian Forest Owners has awarded Maritime College of Forest Technology student Matthew Bezanson the Christopher Lee Memorial Scholarship, based on his academic performance and passion for sustainable forest management on private forest lands in Canada. Currently, Matthew is finishing his last year of the 2-year program and plans on continuing his education at the University of New Brunswick to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Forestry.
