Tolko Industries is moving to a 3 day work week at its Soda Creek mill, with woodland and head office layoffs likely to follow. Meanwhile, Mosaic is shutting down its coastal logging operations ahead of the usual winter shutdown—impacting 2000 workers; and COFI renews the call for a “working forest” to revitalize the sector. In other Business news: Repap backs away from purchasing Resolute’s old Fort Francis, Ontario mill; and a former cabinet minister on Northern Pulp’s sweetheart loan.
