Where to buy it


Here is the amazing inside story of how unknown European promoters got $92 million from successive Manitoba governments to build a pulp and paper complex at the The Pas - a complex which was then called into receivership by the government and was the subject of a judicial enquiry.
Philip Mathias first broke the story of Churchill Forest Industries in the pages of the Financial Post . In Forced Growth he gives a full and fascinating account of this often incredible adventure.
