08/30/2005For Terrace, the mill town left with no mill, the future brightens - News
  B.C. Economy | Last year, the bankrupt operation’s receivers sold it to a local partnership. That was just the beginning It’s tough being a mill town when you don’t have a mill. Just ask folks in Terrace, the self-styled Forestry Capital of B.C. For nearly five years, its big, modern sawmill has sat idle - not because anything’s wrong with it or its products, but because its owners, who also owned the money-losing Skeena pulp mill in Prince Rupert, were broke. In 2002, two years after it closed when a $400-million gush of government funds became New Skeena under new owners George Petty and the city’s, for the mill’s re-opening waxed and waned for a couple more years. But workers and their families had already begun to drift away to find work. Shops and other businesses hunkered down with smaller staffs and leaner earnings. The mood was often bleak. Finally last February an overdue jolt of optimism was injected into the community. The mill’s receivers, who’d considered dismantling the mill and selling off its pieces, instead sold the whole operation to Terrace Lumber Co. a partnership of about 60 local investors, whom had to pool their resources to buy one of the new company’s 24 shares
