In light of the federal government's plans to ban some single use plastics, a forest industry expert says that could mean more jobs in the industry in northern Ontario.

Doug Singbeil of FP Innovations, a non-profit research group designed to help the forest sector, says the north has a vibrant forestry sector and can make many of the items that have been banned, like straws and packaging trays for takeout food.
