On first blush, it looks like a big improvement over what was presented at the first stakeholder consultation in which I participated.

So we can understand how it relates to the Triad and landscape-level planning, will we  soon see similar public consultations on
Old Forest Policy
High Production Forestry, including the “strategic, long-term wood supply analysis”
Environmental Assessment
Outcomes-Based Forest Management ?

It would have been nice to have a public consultation on the Natural Disturbance Regimes but L&F said a firm no to even much more limited stakeholder involvement that one.
