Wonderful! We have a Port that decided in 2008 not to support the export of 50,000 ha woodchip industry from Esperance in favour of YES expanding the iron ore exports. Not a tree would have been planted in 1996 and MIS investors wouldn't have invested an estimated $300 mil in the district. Six years of income lost to the District and the expectation that a new local industry be established for the future was destroyed along with local jobs.
