It has become an annual tradition to mark the year’s diamond anniversary with a series of drawings, usually involving a simple but beautiful diamond that sits on a graphite shaft.
But this year, the drawing wasn’t just an event to celebrate a piece of Canadian history.
It was also an opportunity to draw attention to the ongoing shortage of gemstones, a critical problem in a country that is known for its resource-rich landscape and high-tech industries.
As of late April, the government had recorded just 12,093 diamond products for export and import, with a further 5,931 being imported.
Canada is one of the world’s largest diamond exporters and, with more than 30,000 diamonds imported each year, it has long been a hub for supply chains.
In recent years, however, demand has grown and prices for the materials are skyrocketing.
The shortage has made it a popular destination for those who want to take a vacation in the Sunshine State, but the problem is that there are not enough diamonds available to meet demand.
In the last few years, the demand for graphite has dropped dramatically, according to Greg Smith, a mining analyst at the Canadian Association of Diamond Collectors.
The industry has been hit hard by the global downturn, and as a result, it is also struggling to fill a need for graphites for its mining operations.
“Graphite has always been a high-cost resource and the mining industry has always seen that as a critical issue,” Smith said.
The demand for diamond products has been on the rise in recent years. “
There’s a lot of demand for high-end diamonds right now and there are a lot more options than what’s available.”
The demand for diamond products has been on the rise in recent years.
In the last year alone, the industry has grown by 10 per cent, and by 2024 it expects to produce more than 8,000 tonnes of high-quality diamonds per year.
But the shortage of diamonds is not the only issue that is affecting the industry in this area.
There are also concerns that as demand increases, the quality of the materials can be affected, resulting in fewer diamonds being produced.
In an effort to address this issue, a recent national survey was conducted to better understand the current demand for diamonds.
It found that many people believe that diamond prices have risen as a consequence of the global economic downturn, but they are not seeing the effects of the increase in demand.
“We’ve heard from people that are very surprised and very confused,” Smith told CBC News.
“People think that because the world is going through the economic downturn that demand has dropped, but that’s not the case.”
“What we found is that the demand is actually up and it’s higher than the supply.”
The survey found that people across the country are concerned that diamonds will be a “second-class” material in the supply chain, and that the lack of supply is driving up prices.
“What that really does is put pressure on the market because we’ve had a massive increase in the demand of diamonds, so they’re going to be expensive to produce,” Smith explained.
In addition to the lack for diamonds, the survey also found that diamond workers are concerned about working conditions and how they can earn extra income.
In 2016, workers at the B.C. Diamond Co. in the Lower Mainland had to sign non-disclosure agreements to speak to the CBC.
The workers have been trying to reach out to the company to try and find more jobs, but it’s not working.
They’re not getting anywhere.
“Diamonds are not just for show,” Smith continued.
“They’re a high quality material that is important to our economy.
They’ve got value.
As the industry continues to struggle to fill demand, Smith is looking to the government to provide some financial support for the industry to get the materials it needs.”
If you want it for your business, you have to pay for it.”
As the industry continues to struggle to fill demand, Smith is looking to the government to provide some financial support for the industry to get the materials it needs.
He said the government should make it clear that it wants to help, and will provide up to $1 million per year to help keep the industry operating.
“You can’t do this without government support,” he said.
