Federal Government Boosts Pulp and Paper Industry

New for June 17 2009 5:50pm

The federal government says Canada's struggling pulp and paper industry will be tossed a one-billion dollar lifeline. Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt says the funding will help pulp mills make capital improvements that increase the production and use of clean energy. J-D Irving spokesperson, Mary Keith, tells CHSJ news this means investments at the Irving Pulp and Paper Mill can happen sooner rather than later.

Keith says the grant program will be good for business as well as the environment.
