FW: Whiteshell


Please note that in my posting, I miss-spelled Larry Shewchuk's name
which in turn makes his e-mail incorrect.

Correct spelling is Shewchuk and e-mail is shewchukl@aecl.ca.

My apologies for any inconveniences.

> With a reduction of this amount it is inevitable that layoffs would
