May 9, 2023 By Kamloops This Week staff
B.C. Forests Minister Bruce Ralston said he is confident the Kruger pulp mill in Kamloops will be able to secure a long-term supply of fibre for its operation on Mission Flats Road.
Ralston was in Kamloops on May 5 to speak to members of the Interior Logging Association, which held its annual convention and trade show in the city.
“A couple of weeks ago, maybe over a month ago, I met with the new management team of Kruger from Quebec and they’re very optimistic and pleased to have made the purchase and they’re looking forward to working in British Columbia,” Ralston said. “And they recognize the challenges that come with fibre supply. I think last week they met directly with the premier [David Eby], as well. So, I mean, they have our attention as a company.”
