JS McMillan contributes a pile of income for the town of Prince Rupert. This is going to have a drastic effect on the town. CanFisco, the Mill, JS McMillan, the Grain and a few other companies are what keeps the town going. Without these companies, Prince Rupert would simply be a port and there would be no need populate the area with people. I realize you are all just a bunch of smartasses, but maybe take into consideration that it is Christmas time and the employees of JS McMillan are going to suffer, as well as the other local business because of this.
I hope you all have very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Or if you rely on your parents like alot do, hope they have a prosperous one. I’m out…[/quote]
If you are judging the rest of the people on this website based on reading the above posts by Mr Charles_T… then you have a lot to learn. I don’t remember anyone saying anything negative about the plant or to anyone who might have worked there or even families of the people.
Anyone in their right mind know that this will have an impact on the already dwindling economy. But all we can do is hope that it will be up and running within a year and everything will turn out all right. Rupert will turn around. There are too many people that care about it to let it run itself into the ground. Getting a fresh city council will hopefully start the ball moving.
Oh… and offshore oil. Gotta have that. It’s done wonders for Atlantic Canada.
