Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Visiting wives improve logging lifestyle By PAUL GESSELL BAIE COMEAU, Que. (CP) A logging camp may not be the most ideal spot to spend a honeymoon but if you work for Quebec North Shore Paper Co. Ltd., you can at least try for marital bliss in such a rugged setting. The company recently introduced a program allowing wives to visit camps for one week inter- vals, staying with their husbands, taking their meals in camp kitchens and in certain cases, mak- ing use of the company's transportation services. "It's good for said Edouard Lafond, the company's assistant general-manager of woodland operations. Many of the men, who otherwise would not see their wives for long periods of time, are now being treated to monthly visits. One employee's wife, said Mr. Lafond, travels every payday from a more populated area of Quebec to the dense bushland stretching between Labrador and the St. Lawrence River to collect her husband's wages. The man, he said, is an alcoholic, but manages to stay sober because of his wife's bimonthly visits. Company spokesmen, who list harmonious labor relations as one of their top priorities, feel that little touches like an occasional domestic reunion lessen discord. Next year, said Mr. Lafond, camping grounds will be constructed near two of the company's five logging sites for the use of employees' families. If the experience proves favorable, similar facilities, equipped with electricity and running water, will be installed near all the logging sites, he said. Quebec North Shore Paper Co. Ltd., which claims modern kitchen and recreation facilities, soon hopes to furnish taverns at some logging sites. Signs posted throughout the camps state that "no li- quor is allowed" but the rule is rarely enforced.
