Resolute Forest Products is laying off 239 people at its Fort Frances mill.

The company announced Tuesday it would be idling its kraft mill and paper machine No. 5 at the Fort Frances pulp and paper mill.

The decision to idle the mill is because of decreased consumption and the high Canadian dollar.

MP John Rafferty (NDP, Thunder Bay-Rainy River) said the announcement is devastating for the workers and their families.

“This news came as a shock today,” Rafferty said in a news release.  “My heart goes out to the families and constituents who are directly and indirectly affected by these layoffs. My staff and I are ready to assist anyone who will be affected by this devastating announcement.”

Rafferty spoke with representatives from Resolute about the layoffs and was assured the company is committed to helping the workers affected by the shutdown.
