CORNER BROOK, N.L. - A western Newfoundland newsprint mill walked away from negotiations with its employees Friday night.

Kruger Inc., the Montreal-based company that owns the Corner Brook Pulp and Paper mill, and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union traded proposals as a midnight deadline approached.

The union will now arrange meetings to vote on a new offer.

Premier Kathy Dunderdale has said that even an agreement might not be enough to save the mill, which is on the verge of bankruptcy.
