Brown talks Atikokan Forest Products

Any hopes of reopening the shuttered Atikokan Forest Products mill appears to be dashed with an auction underway to sell its equipment. Mayor Dennis Brown says he would have liked to see more support from the province to get the mill restarted. A Montreal company was interested in the mill, but backed out after they failed to secure an adequate wood supply from the province.
