The Positive Impact of Harvesting the Forest

August 14, 2014

Environmentalist groups claim that harvesting the forest jeopardizes its future and harms the animal species that live there. As part of our research program on Quebec’s forests, the Vice President of the MEI, Mr. Jasmin Guénette, visited an outfitter to see how wildlife activities coexist with logging activities. This short documentary provides a realistic picture of the Quebec forest narrated by those who make their living from it.

Media release: Some environmentalist groups exaggerate: Quebec’s forests are not threatened, according to a new documentary and an Economic Note from the MEI

Other short documentary: The state of Quebec’s forests (October 3, 2013)
