Abitibi Paper Co. Ltd. & Price Paper Co. There would seem to be a error in the flag portrayal by Brown with a missing "i" i.e. the flag shows "ABITBI-PRICE" instead of [presumably] "ABITIBI-PRICE" being taken as a printing error as the name is correctly shown in the index. According to Wikipedia Abitibi Paper Co. Ltd. took a controlling interest in Price Bros. & Co. Ltd. in 1974 with a corporate name change in 1979 to Abitibi-Price Inc. eventually merging as noted by Phil.
