Howe Sound Pulp and Paper cuts 180 jobs

Howe Sound Pulp and Paper is cutting more than a third of its workforce and permanently shutting down its paper production operations, parent company Paper …

The closure is effective immediately. The cuts affect about 140 unionized workers and 40 salaried staff at the Port Mellon mill, the Sunshine Coast’s largest private employer.

We need a bridge or a tunnel now, a fixed link , with rail to Port Mellon. No business or industry will establish on the coast having to rely on the ferries.

    People wonder how to fix the real estate affordability, lack of single family housing supply Vancouver, The answers right under our noses. The port eau cove suggestion would work for a fixed link, it’s only 75 m deep there, and the topography on the west side of the howe sound is similar to the Eastside (if not better ) where the s to s is already built through. The technology is there to do this, what’s lacking is the will.
