BC Premier Mike Harcourt went to Belgium, Germany and Britain in early February to fight off Greenpeace's threat of a forest boycott in Europe. Through 10 days of forums, editorial board grillings and skirmishes with protesters, Harcourt put up a determined defense of BC logging standards, and arrived at a tentative agreement with Clayoquot Sound tribes on Vancouver Island to set up a government-aboriginal board to oversee logging. One of the best weapons in Harcourt's arsenal was Clayoquot aboriginal leader Charlie Watts, who said a boycott would cripple the already anemic economies in native communities.
