$130 million paid to Abitibi as a settlement could have gone a long way to reinvigorating the region's economy. The hundreds of millions the province will have to pay for the environmental cleanup could have gone a long way to diversify the local economy. It is with tremendous regret that I say this entire situation from the industry downturn, the mill closure and expropriation are nothing but an albatross around our collective necks.
