Skeena Sawmills’ Terrace, B.C., mill is idling for the week after running out of log inventory.

Company president Roger Keery told The Northern View that many factors led to the fibre shortage, including extreme weather over the year and COVID-19 hiring challenges.

The mill plans to start up again next week.
