It's the same with putting all of our eggs in one basket. Admittedly, in the mid 1800s, we really didn't have much of a choice. As a British Colony, it was expected that most of the wood extracted from our forests would be sent to Mother England for use as construction lumber for buildings, and in shipbuilding, particularly for the production of masts made from white and red pine. They were sending so much Canadian wood to Britain that if logs were sent, they were squared prior to shipping, so that a higher volume of wood could be stacked inside of each ship crossing the Atlantic. It seems we didn't really learn much about catering to single markets from that experience. Look at the 20th century, and the early part of this century and we willingly turned to our neighbours to the south and made them, by far, our biggest market for wood products. Even when the softwood lumber agreement came into play, most major companies in Canada's forest industry didn't diversify in terms of geographic markets, continuing to pump dimension lumber and studs into a country that at its peak was building 2.2 million homes per year. That, of course, all changed when the economic bubble recently burst and new home starts in the United States dropped below 500,000 annually, reducing significantly demand for our dimension lumber and other wood products.
