Canfor and the Transformation of British Columbia's Forest Industry

eBook - 2012
Rate this:
One of Canada's most accomplished business leaders reflects on his influential role in the industry that built British Columbia. From a privileged early childhood in Vienna to an overnight escape from Hitler's grasp, to the seven decades spent building Canadian Forest Products with his father and uncle, Peter Bentley's life story is one of great challenges and unequivocal successes. An unflinching leader and a respected philanthropist, Bentley describes a colourful business career and shares his unique perspective on the rise and fall -- and the subsequent reinvention -- of Western Canada's forest industry in all its complexity. Bentley does not avoid controversy in his accounting of political shenanigans in BC and across the nation. Nor does he shy away from the challenge of staring down the deep well of environmental issues. His views are those of a passionate citizen who, like his father before him, has given much of his life to the improvement of business and culture in British Columbia and Canada. Bentley's thoughts and reflections are his legacy to those who follow.
