37 Years Ago (1982): The office of the provincial ombudsman was recommending the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) reduce its contribution assessment rating of 100 Mile Freed and Ranch. The ombudsman was the latest in a string of events involving a dispute between the firm and the WCB that had begun two years prior. Owner Frank Dobbs Jr. sued the WCB after being unsuccessful in having his rate reduced from $3.80 per $100 in wages paid to his employees to 50 cents, contending that his business was unfairly assessed by the board.

39 Years Ago (1980): General consensus at a mayor's conference call was that a B.C. Rail strike wasn't critical yet, according to Mayor Ross Marks. Marks added that "mills are trucking or stockpiling" but that the matter if unresolved would become more grave "within the next week to two weeks." As a result of the meeting Prince George's mayor sent a telegram to the Premier. Ainsworth Lumber Company's Exeter plant manager Dick Sellars observed that "if the strike continued, we'd have to stop very soon."
