Today the NDP Caucus urged government to work collaboratively in response to the tariffs the United States is imposing on Corner Brook Pulp and Paper.

Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi) says the most recent American ‘tariff-hit’ to Kruger’s mill in Corner Brook, while beyond our control, could seriously harm the province’s forestry industry.

NDP Municipal Affairs Critic George Murphy (MHA, St. John’s East) asked questions on behalf of a group of Deer Lake residents in the House of Assembly today. The homeowners are dealing with flooded properties; some of their homes also have mold problems which they feel are related.

 

NDP Forestry and Agrifoods critic Christopher Mitchelmore (MHA, The Straits-White Bay North) says that as government gets closer to announcing the $90 million it is lending Kruger Inc., he hopes the announcement will include the terms of the loan as promised by the premier in the House of Assembly last spring.
