It wasn’t a typical Monday morning for forestry workers in New Brunswick, as employees took to the streets to demand the government take action to help their industry. Forestry workers from all over the province convened at the border crossing in St. Leonard in an attempt to prompt the federal government to address the crisis that is ravaging their communities.

Roughly 20 worksites were represented by members of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union. They were transported to the demonstration from Grand Falls.
