The Joliette Paper Mill in Quebec is another step closer to once again producing paper, after private investors have announced their intentions to invest about $6 million in the mill. The group is led by Jean-Pierre Goulet, an engineer holding more than 20 years of experience in the pulp and paper industry, and mill workers. The mill, which belongs to Cascades Inc., will likely employ 35 workers. It is scheduled to re-open in May 2000.
