Toronto, ON – Residents near Deer Lake, Nfld, say that Corner Brook Pulp and Paper Ltds heavy equipment has damaged nearby trails and dirt roads, according to a CBC report, and they want the company to repair the damage. CBPP, based in Corner Brook, logs east of Howley each winter and spring, and in past years, has repaired roads after the logging season ends.

But this year, no repairs have been made. Local cabin owner Earl Pike noted to the CBC that the logging trucks and graders have pushed away the crushed stone top layer of the road, and flattened the middle to a foot below the sides. He is worried that heavy rains could washout the road bed.

CBC was informed by a spokesman for CBPP that logging was just completed a few weeks ago, and that it will repair any roads that its equipment may have damaged.
