I am a supervisor for a local contractor. We currently have contracts with a general contractor to wire two new OPP detachments, one in Fort Frances, one in Moosonee. We are the only local contractor on site, with most but not all coming from Thunder Bay or Winnipeg.

To everyone who is stocking up in panic mode causing empty shelves. Please be aware, Friday is Child Tax day, which means a lot of families will be out shopping for food, household items and necessities and things for their babies and children.
Some families rely on child tax day to refill their supplies and stock their cupboards.
This is to address the current panic over COVID-19. It's getting ridiculous. This past week the entire district sold out of toilet paper. Seriously? Why? Because the media reported runs on toilet paper in Australia or somewhere?
I am writing this in response to Councillor Judson's article. This is in support of Lynn Beyak. I do not know this lady. I have never met her, or any of her family, nor have I visited her website. What I am supporting is the truth, along with our right to freedom of speech, both of which we seem to be losing with our present government.
I refer to Cynthia Donald's letter which you published in your January 22nd issue of The Times, as well as the Publisher's Pen - Solutions needed for Community Housing. Both were so very thought provoking and got me thinking immediately of a huge problem that we Seniors living in the Rainy River District are experiencing.
Resolute Forest Products Canada Inc. (RFP) closed its Fort Frances pulp and paper mill in February 2014.
In the latter part of 2014 and early 2015 Expera tried to buy and operate the pulp and paper mill in Fort Frances. However, Expera suspended its efforts to buy this mill as RFP insisted on controlling its wood supply from the Crossroute Forest.
