NDP, Green Party propose strategies to tackle mill closure in Fort Nelson

Local candidates in the upcoming federal election are now offering comment on the closure of the Takama mill in Fort Nelson.

Yesterday, Canfor announced the mill would be closing indefinitely after its current inventory was depleted near the end of this month.

NDP candidate for Prince George-Peace River Betty Bekkering says her party would create a strong strategy to address the wave of mill closures across BC.

Meanwhile, Green Party candidate Hilary Crowley says her party would like to invest in renewable industry in mill towns to employ laid-off workers.
