Our Vice-President, Jean Luc, announces shutdowns due to market conditions. In our division, all components are touched. Housing starts in the U.S.A. are at their lowest levels ever, and affect our need to produce lumber. Forecasts, however, provide for improvement beginning as early as April 2009. Hopefully we can all weather these lay-offs and stay ready to enjoy the improving economy in the future.
