For almost a century, the pulp and paper mill that hugs a sharp bend in the Rainy River in Fort Frances, Ont., provided work for members of Bob Armit's family.
Mr. Armit's grandfather, Ed Calder, helped build the mill more than 100 years ago. His father, Charles Armit, worked in the mill's logging camp and later became an accountant at the mill. Bob Armit worked there for 28 years and his son Victor another 16.
But Victor may be the end of the line. After idling one of the plant's three paper machines in 2012, Resolute Forest Products Inc. officially announced the closing of the operation on May 6, eight days before the facility's 100th anniversary.
Unless a buyer can be found, the mill will no longer provide jobs for younger Armit's or the next generation of any family in the town of 7,700.
There's something wrrate communications, says the forest products company has offered the same deal on wood to all the companies it has spoken to about buying the mill. Those include Canadian, U.S., European, Chinese and other Asian companies.
Resolute did the harvesting, fibre would be delivered on an open book, full transparent, true cost basis, Mr. Kursman says. Parties looking at the mill were also given the option of harvesting their own fibre, with saw-log-quality logs going to the sawmills and pulp-quality logs going to the pulp mill.
He notes that the mill posted an operating loss of $88.3-million between 2009 and 2014.
Ms. Mainville spoke at a recent protest rally in the town, where she urged the provincial government to intervene.
An operating mill provides some hope and opportunity for younger generations to remain in the area, she notes. Some members of her community are working in the Alberta oil patch, while some others are away four days a week hauling logs to Thunder Bay and elsewhere.
It's not just our kids in high school that don't know what the path is, I think it's all the high-school kids in the district.
