FREDERICTON, N.B. — Andy Savoy, MP for Tobique-Mactaquac, will meet with Maine Congressman John Baldacci next month to discuss the softwood lumber trade issue.
Also at the table will be lumber industry stakeholders from both sides of the border voicing specific regional concerns caused by the current state of the softwood lumber industry.
Savoy first met with the congressman when he travelled to Washington, D.C. in June.
“During my meeting with Congressman Baldacci on the softwood lumber trade issue, I was impressed with this level of commitment to the Atlantic region,” Savoy says to local media.
“As a result, we both decided to establish a dialogue this summer to address mutual regional concerns (such as) environmental, economic, border, and of course, trade issues.”
