B.C. wood helps rebuild Japanese communities
from The Vancouver Sun
More than three years after a massive earthquake and tsunami tore through their community, many residents of the small Japanese town of Yamada-machi are still living in temporary housing. Now, their children can play at a new community centre designed for them and built with donated B.C. wood. The Oranda Jima House, built in the fishing town about 300 km northeast of Fukushima, is the third project on Japan's eastern seaboard involving timber donated by Canada Wood — the marketing arm of the Canadian lumber sector.
