Kapuskasing will support a request for an improved lumber agreement with the U-S.  Town council agreed to support a request from UNIFOR local President Dennis Piche to urge the federal government to improve the softwood lumber agreement with the United States.  Chair of Finance Dave Plourde says the request was an easy one to support for council, and hopefully other northern municipalities follow suit.

He says a large amount of municipalities would feel the effects of job loss due to the current agreement between Canada and the U-S.
