I would like to comment on the Jas Johal interview of Jim Shepherd, past CEO of the Canfor Corporation and Canadian Forest Products Ltd. on the Global newscast of Jan. 28, 2013 at 6 p.m.
In said interview, Jim Shepherd wanted to discredit the popularity of the NDP leader Adrian Dix in regard to a certain memo he wrote and wrongly dated, when he served as the Chief of Staff for the then NDP Premier Glen Clark.
Adrian Dix apologized for his mistake a long time ago.
At the time when he wrote said memo, he wanted to protect his boss, the then NDP Premier Glen Clark of British Columbia, who serves today as the president of the Jim Pattison Group and as a director of the Canfor Corporation and Canadian Forest Products Ltd. companies.
The Canfor Corporation and Canadian Forest Products Ltd. operate a number of sawmills in B.C., among them the sawmills in Radium Hot Springs and Canal Flats.
