After nearly 35 years with the company, Don Breen has retired from Northern Pulp. The mill’s former general manager officially retired on Feb. 1 and said he applied for retirement about six months ago, long before a dispute with the province over access to fibre on Crown lands. “It had nothing to do with it,” Breen said in a telephone interview. Last week, Premier Stephen McNeil turned down a bailout request from Northern Pulp that would have included a $10-million forgivable loan.
