No End In Sight To NorSask Down Time

The president of NorSask Wood Products in Meadow Lake says he’s not sure when laid-off workers will be back on the job.


It was roughly two weeks ago that roughly five dozen employees were forced off the job because of low timber supplies.


Allen Brander says the moist conditions are making it impossible for logs to get to the mill.


Brander notes the sawmill isn’t even running right now, but the planer is still going.


He says the workers will be back as soon as he can find enough wood for a two-week period.
