By Amie Silverwood
Dec. 18, 2014 – The mayor of Fort Frances is asking the Natural Resources and Forestry minister Bill Mauro to put Resolute Forest Products' local wood supply on hold until a solution is found for the sale of the Fort Frances pulp and paper mill. According to The Fort Frances Times, the mayor told the minister that he understands that the asset is owned by Resolute but he wants the minister to use his power to influence the company's decisions.
The mayor is accusing the forest company of wanting to have the mill torn down and then be allocated the wood supply by default. He believes that if the wood supply should be taken away from the company and rather tied directly to the pulp mill.
