The management teams and union leadership of the pulp and paper mill, woodlands operations and Thunder Bay sawmill attended the presentation, along with dignitaries, First Nations representatives and local media.
The Governor General then toured the Thunder Bay market pulp and newsprint operations, as well as cogeneration facility.
