Fortress Paper halts mill construction

Here is a news from REUTERS concerning FTP.  It could provide opportunity to buy in FTP at a lower price.

Fortress said it was looking at all options available to resume construction at the mill.

The company expects that the start of pulp production at the specialty mill, planned for early November, will only be delayed slightly.
