The provincial government won’t guarantee wood supply to Fort Frances unless a new owner is in place at the former pulp and paper mill.

Natural Resources and Forestry Minister John Yakabuski said in the Ontario Legislature, March 26,that the availability of Crown fibre allocation will be considered for a potential operator should a property sale with Resolute Forest Products go through.
