A major Canadian forestry firm says this fall’s flooding and mudslides in B.C. have impacted its operations and are resulting in layoffs at an Alberta pulp mill.

“As a result of the significant flooding in southern B.C., the province is now facing serious transportation and logistics issues impacting highways, rail and our ports,” Joyce Wagenaar, a corporate spokesperson for West Fraser, told Global News in an email on Wednesday.
