It’s been a tough quarter for Tembec. The forest products giant posted a whopping $73.9 million operating loss, falling victim to pressures imposed by sinking pulp prices and a soaring Canadian dollar. Exponential wood and energy costs have also hit not only Tembec, but numerous industry players, hard.
