A dispute over wood rights should have a resolution within the next several weeks, Natural Resources Minister David Ramsay said.
According to a report by Miner and News, Kenora Forest Products is seeking to implement an expansion plan at its local mill, a move that is expected to add a total of 250 jobs to a region that has recently lost 440 positions due to the forestry crisis. Concurrently, First Nation Communities want to protect their traditional lands, the report confirmed.
Ramsay, additionally responsible for Aboriginal affairs, noted the various complex issues involved in handing down a decision and was quoted by the Miner and News as saying, We want to make sure of certainty of supply, and that We are in constant communications with First Nations.
