Alexander MacKenzie fires a cannon on his “pirate” ship towards Northern Pulp on Wednesday evening.

Alexander MacKenzie fires a cannon on his “pirate” ship towards Northern Pulp on Wednesday evening. Using fireworks in the cannon as a symbol, MacKenzie said he wanted to give the pulp mill a little more to think about. A resident of Lower Road since the 1960s, he said he’s sick of bad odour invading residents’ houses and the “threat” of not knowing what’s in the air. CHRISTOPHER CAMERON – THE NEWS 

Geographic location: Northern Pulp, Lower Road

    MacKenzie is constantly haranguing the pulp mill to take responsibility for him being sick of bad odour invading residents' houses. The public should also insist that he take responsibility for stealing people's right to vote as the self proclaimed ballot box bandit, desecrating the Canadian flag at every opportunity, digging up roadways & doing damage to out courthouse as a condition for cleaning up the pulp mill. MacKenzie is no folk hero in the eyes of most members of the public in this county. He is merely a convicted criminal who has been given a soapbox by The News.
