    Finally it's been added here. I've inquired about this film here before, it's nice to see it finally here. I was born and raised in this small town. I currently work there as a Welder,my father worked there from the beginning of Tembec as a Millwright,his father worked there for CIP up until it was shutdown by CIP. It is now owned by a company from the USA called Rayonier Advance Materials
