The Honourable Elvis Loveless, Minister of Fisheries, Forestry and Agriculture, participated in Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (CCFM) meetings in Cranbrook, British Columbia this week to discuss shared priorities, common challenges, and emerging opportunities in Canada’s forest sector. Minister Loveless assumes the CCFM chair from outgoing chair, the Honourable Bruce Ralston, British Columbia’s Minister of Forests.
