Feds can't force mill issues: Rusnak

Following a statement last week by federal NDP candidate for Thunder Bay—Rainy River, Yuk-Sem Won, charging the current Liberal government for its lack of support on the mill issue, MP Don Rusnak said the federal government is ready to assist but cannot force any owner of the mill to open or close the property or force the province to allocate fibre supply. 

Correction

Some incorrect information was included in a cutline for a photo on page B1 of yesterday's Times.

The only car that was towed off the track was Carter Kinnear's #23 car. James Lambert drove off the track himself, made a quick fix and was back out on for the next race.

The Times apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Rusnak bids farewell

Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP Don Rusnak is approaching the end of his term and won't be seeking re-election, to spend more time with his young family.

He was in the district last Wednesday to make a funding announcement, which will be one of his last visits as MP before the federal election.

Town urges province to halt ESFL

The future of the district's forests continues to be a top priority for the town.

Fort Frances town council urged the province to put a hold on the development of a new Enhanced Sustainable Forest Licence (ESFL) so it can provide greater benefit to municipalities yesterday during the Association of Municipalities Ontario (AMO) conference in Ottawa.
