(L-r) Nurses Tasha Jensen and Geri Neufeld plus Ted McGill, a representative of the Independent Log Haulers of Canfor, try out two reclining chairs the log haulers recently purchased for the nursing station at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital.

The chairs are greatly appreciated, say the nurses, especially during a 12-hour shift when they might have only a few minutes to put their feet up. Since re-starting last fall Canfor has not continued with its earlier policy of putting over-weight payments into a special truckers’ fund for local good causes, McGill said.
