In Canada, June 21, the summer solstice, has been designated National Indigenous Peoples Day. As stated by the Government of Canada, this is a day to “recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.” It is also a time to look forward to the opportunities that lie in front of us.

On May 29, 2020, Pinnacle Renewable Energy set a new record for the largest load of wood pellets ever shipped from Canada when the Panamax-class vessel MV Siboney M departed Westview Terminal at the Port of Prince Rupert, B.C., with 63,601 tonnes of wood pellets bound for the United Kingdom. A Panamax is the largest vessel class in terms of width and length that is able to pass through the lock chambers in the old Panama Canal.
