Layoffs.

Normick Perron Inc. shut down its Cochrane and Kirkland Lake plants last month, putting 95 employees out of work. The layoffs were attributed to the fact that Abitibi-Price Inc.'s Iroquois Falls division has temporarily reduced its purchases of wood chips. The earliest the mills could reopen is Jan. 1. However, the length of the layoff depends on Normick Perron's success in finding other buyers for the chips. With a reduction in both the demand and prices for pulp and paper products, the prospects are not promising.
