In ForestWork's premiere episode, host Stewart Muir and guest Gaby Wickstrom discuss the unique challenges and triumphs of BC's industry towns.
Mayor Gaby Wickstrom of Port McNeill.
Port McNeill, located on Northern Vancouver Island is, in a word, idyllic. Not unlike many other small towns in British Columbia, it was founded and continues to grow today as a burgeoning community due largely to the forestry industry - a rich legacy that literally built the socio-economic backbone of our province.
In this episode, ForestWorks has a candid discussion with Gaby Wickstrom, Mayor of Port McNeill, that unveils some of the unique challenges, triumphs and fragility facing “Industry Towns” in BC.
