Not to fear...the owners have plenty of money....IF....they wish to keep Essar Sault up and running. The big question is IF .....

Yet there are those who still see the plant as viable and Essar as playing games.

I don't know enough about it, for people have had a bad feeling about the future there for as long as I can remember.
I hope it all turns out okay, but for years, we've been 'waiting' for the end.
Maybe expecting is a better word?

How about Sydney Steel? They went down like the Titanic.

I heard the President of the plant say at a meeting a few years ago that the Chinese were building the equivalent of 5 Essar Steel's every year.

To think Essar is playing games is simplistic.

This whole trend of globalization can have some very nasty consequences, and if things go badly, this town will be decimated.

That's why when it comes to natural resources and essential industry, I am a stout nationalist. The Canadian government should keep ownership and control of all essential resources and production. If they did, we wouldn't be paying $5.60 a gallon for gas right now, and the steel plant would be safe.

Decimated?? No.

You take 3,000 good-paying jobs out of this town, and all the off-shoot industry that goes with it, and this town will be economically gutted like a fish.

I have no doubt of that, whatsoever.

I would agree with The Sock barry, one would be able to fire a cannon down any mall in town and need not fear hitting anyone.

If I was employed there I would be looking at other options, real soon.

Band aid, Possibly. But why would the parent company invest when they can simply write off and escape the burden?

Hell, no! I never had any desire to work (sleep) in that drafty, smelly, snake pit!!

The mother company is taking a one time gamble that you will not see again.
If it works, it works, if not, that will be all she wrote.

Good to see you know the inner workings not to mention understand the thinking of the parent company.

I think it is best to believe what the company says...and stop all this fear mongering. Afterall...those rumours have been flying around for 50 years.

Since exiting my mother's womb, that place has been going under. It's like listening to end of the world prophecies. When one doesn't come to fruition, another one begins.

If you put a frog in a pot of water, and slowly increase the temperature, he won't jump out to save himself. He just cooks.

Welcome to Sault Ste. Marie!

China and its steel production are Essars biggest threat. How do you compete with a country that pays its workers peanuts and does not allow a union ??
