This closure will put 450 people out of work directly, then indirectly there will be 2000 people who will be affected. No, PDad does not work for Canfor, thank goodness. This is a big blow to our little town of 4,500.
Well, that'* not good news at all...especially for a small community :(
Isn't that Cabfor'* second largest mill? I guess Houston will remain in production?
It'* tough going all around in the industry, especially since the SLA (Sellout Lumber Agreement). Why the Canadian Government ever signed an agreement like that is well beyond common sense. Sadly, I think we'll see more bad news in the industry.
Sorry to here about the job situation over there. They just seem to keep going away. My husband and I hate that he has to work thirds with the baby coming and everything but he has to keep it b/c there aren't any other jobs anywhere where we are. I guess all you can do is think positive and hope things start getting better here real soon.
