Tree Farming Country
I arrived in Port McNeil on the ferry from Sointula shortly before 8 a.m. yesterday and exactly three hours later pulled into the Nanaimo ferry terminal at Departure Bay. Still, with two hours until the next ferry (12:50 p.m.), I was the last car on!
While in Port McNeil on Thursday I noticed the city nickname on the side of one of its public works vehicles. Who would have thought thirty years ago that one of the biggest and meanest logging regions in B.C. would one day bill itself "Tree Farming Country"?
