Gallant Skeptical Of Forestry Plan Being Announced Now

The announcement by the Alward Government of a long term plan for forestry has provincial Liberal leader Brian Gallant questioning the timing. 

Gallant is wondering why now and why not a couple of years ago when the provincial economy needed a boost.

Gallant speculates the timing has more to do with a provincial election that will be held in late September or, perhaps, to divert attention from the obstruction of justice trial now going on of a senior official in the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture into the investigation of Deputy Premier Paul Robichaud's brother for an aquaculture violation.
