BANKING IN ACTION is manifested in the crash of falling trees; in the rush of logs, as the lumberjacks break the jam and speed the timber on its way; in the scream of saws, as busy mills convert it into planks, beams and ,scantlings. Logging and lumbering provide work and wages for the woods, the mills, the construction industry. The stream of wealth thus flowing across Canada is an example of Banking In Action.
