The Quebec government is lending the owner of the pulp mill in Thurso up to $8 million in an attempt to restart the shuttered plant, which employs more than 300.

The loan comes one day after Fortress Global Enterprises announced the temporary closure of the mill, 50 kilometres east of Gatineau, Que., blaming the ongoing trade dispute between the U.S.A. and China, as well as the declining price for the mill's cellulose products.
