Another Crazy Situation.

 Ontario's Ford government have proposed increasing logging on government owned lands from 15 million cubic metres to 30 million by 2030. Resources Minister John Yakabuski said it will revitalize the industry and create jobs. Environmental groups, including the David Suzuki Foundation, Ontario Nature and the Wildlands League oppose the plan because it will threaten already endangered species like the Boreal Caribou. So there it is: another crazy situation which is the norm for capitalism; either would-be loggers won’t get jobs or the environment will suffer. At the time of writing we don’t know how it will play out, but we can be sure it won't be good.
