The Truck Loggers Association says it’s hoping Prime Minister designate Justin Trudeau follows through with the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal.

The Liberals didn’t take a firm position on the TPP during the campaign, saying they wanted to see the details before making any decisions.

David Elstone is the Executive Director of the TLA. He says people in the coastal forest industries need open access to as many markets as possible.

Elstone says the TLA is also encouraging Trudeau to heed premier Christy Clark’s call to make negotiating a new softwood lumber agreement with the US a top priority.
