Port highlights Northern BC's forest sector and its connection to Asia through Prince Rupert

With their Economic impact report of this week telling the story of the economic engine that the Port of Prince Rupert provides across Northern British Columbia, a new video from the Port offers up a further glimpse into just how that inter-connection works from Prince Rupert to Prince George and beyond.

The latest of short video vignettes that Port has produced, puts the focus on the province's forest sector and how communities that are at the heart of the industry are sending their products to market through the Fairview container terminal and other facilities of the Port of Prince Rupert.

The tour of the region takes the viewer to the sawmills and pulp mills of Northern British Columbia rolling along to cover a list of towns and cities like Burns Lake, Prince George, Fraser Lake, Smithers, Houston and Terrace to name a few.

Locations that become more than just stops on the CN Rail mainline map, but communities that provide for jobs and an economic engine for the entire Highway 16 corridor.

Where the products of Northern British Columbia's forest sector come from.
and where they are destined for after the products ship out of the Port of Prince Rupert

Included among some of the featured stops on the video review are the facilities located in Prince Rupert from the Fairview container terminal, to the new loading facility on Ridley Island and the giant lumber yard of Tidal Coast Terminals in the city's Industrial Park.

The theme of the four and half minutes that of how each community of the North is connected to each other, with the Port providing for the heart of the trade from the forests of the province to the markets of Asia.
