We wanted it to last forever: Closing the Minas Basin Paperboard Mill rounds out a good portion of Jodrey's legacy from the perspective of his chosen hometown of Hantsport. In the late 1920s, Jodrey chose the little town on the Avon River for his mill because of tax concessions that nearby Windsor wouldn't offer. He set up papermaking operations in the old Churchill shipyard. His new industries replaced the outdated production efforts that saw more than 130 wooden sailing vessels built in Hantsport. Biographer Bruce observed that Minas Basin Pulp and Power "became a synonym among bluenose businessmen for a small-town, financial genius named Roy Jodrey". It was Jodrey and his heirs who provided a good workplace, solid employment for area residents and environmental leadership for 85 years. A time of change In 2012, 135 employees, some of whom had worked at the plant for more than 30 years, lost their jobs. Forty of the employees were offered jobs at CKF Inc., the company's sister plant. The closure came 44 days after the mill's parent company, Scotia Investments Ltd., announced the plant would cease operating due to increased competition and rising costs. But closures in the papermaking industry, including the closure of the NewPage and Bowater Mersey paper plants, have not been confined to just one region of the province. About 30 per cent of the displaced workers lived in Hantsport, with its population of just over a thousand, and the rest resided anywhere from Coldbrook to St. Croix. Dick Groot interviewed 23 of them and took their portraits. "They reflect on the good and bad times and share their feelings about the impact the mill had on their families and the community over several generations", he said. Groot says the loss of the plant was a devastating loss to the employees and the town. "This closure followed the shutting down of the gypsum mine and the gypsum loading facility in Hantsport about 12 months earlier. Hence, a double whammy".
