HALIFAX -- Dozens of people from Nova Scotia's forestry industry pressed their concerns Wednesday over the sector's future to members of a government transition team tasked with providing assistance following the closure of the Northern Pulp mill.

Woodlot owners, sawmill operators, and industry contractors packed a hotel ballroom in Halifax during the industry's annual general meeting for a chance to provide feedback to team chairwoman Kelliann Dean and to Julie Towers, deputy minister of the province's Lands and Forestry Department.
