While still working with and waiting on Ottawa and Queen’s Park to put together a $40 million package for track maintenance and safety upgrades to the 288-kilometer line, which would avert a system wide shutdown, the Huron Central Railway has issued a notice to all 43 employees that their positions will be terminated at the end of December should the railway cease operation. At this time, all employees continue to work and service the Algoma Steel plant in Sault Ste. Marie, Domtar’s pulp and paper plant in Espanola and EACOM’s sawmill operation in Nairn Centre.
