Timber mills around Victoria and Australia have been progressively shut down for years, now the ASH heyfield timber mill (one of Australia's biggest mills) is being closed after the government deciding to pull its sustainable timber supply in favour of buying ting timber overseas and a reduced price of course, and to pander to the greens party who say they are all about the environment however overlook that the timber that will be sourced is actually much more damaging to the environment just not in this country! The cheaper timber will be sourced from countries where it is not sustainable, pollutes water bodies resulting in limitations to already limited water supplies and essentially causing drought and death in these countries.... we have to wonder if these hardworking families losing there jobs and livelihoods so the government can look good and save a dollar is right?!
