Noted. Good for Greenpeace.....bring on the protests, petitions & letters to sign. I'm ready. Resolute Forest Products is not to be trusted---they're liars who break their word.

Thanks Cal for the link to the Jeremy Hance article. Kudos to Greenpeace Canada. I wonder if they will publish a list of companies that Resolute Forest Products sullies the wood to so that we may boycott them. Read and noted.

Noted. There are really people for whom profit comes first, no matter the disasters they leave behind. Thank you, Cal.

Why doesn't the Canadian gov't kick them the hell out of Canada? And they shouldn't be allowed to renew their business license in the US.

We as individuals number in the billions. Whatever we choose NOT to spend our money on decides the success and failure of industries and corporations and businesses. I never purchase animal products, and try to trade my dollars for Organic produce only. The cattle and dairy and pig an chicken and egg industries have stolen not only the lives and freedoms of domesticated animals, made them miserable every moment of their lives and then immorally slaughter them, but the lands have been stolen, forests decimated, waters made putrid rancid and poisonous, atmosphere too dry and warm and polluted to maintain balance. Too many are making money off of the back of Sacred Life.

i tend to lean towards greenpeace's side but contracts can be interpreted different ways and maybe this is a grey area. i hope Resolute Forest Products change their minds.

Resolute forest products? Sounds as if their resoluteness lies in personal profit only. Hope they experience what they do to forests.

I'm not surprised the agreement has been broken. None of these corporations can be trusted. They are never made to pay, not enough anyway. There needs to be criminal punishment; that's the only thing that will force them their hand. Fines mean nothing to them. Shared

Logging companies, mining companies, all other "biggies" think they are above the law. It's time to take action before it is too late !

Very disturbing. The logging company need throwing out. Greed over the environment once again by a logging company.
