The ink has been spilling for weeks, and it continues.  Northern Pulp’s emissions contain nearly twice the particulate matter allowed under provincial regulations.

Management’s response is, “We don’t know what is wrong, and we don’t know how to fix it”.  Government’s response is, “We are going to throw more millions at it next June and we MIGHT be able to solve it”.

Meanwhile for everyone  in Pictou and surrounding area, we can see it, we can smell it, it is so thick we can taste it, if we try to take very shallow breaths we won’t cough, and we certainly will keep our children indoors this summer.  Is there anyone who can condone living like this?  Mr. MacNeil, your government differs not one whit from all previous governments.  All talk and NO ACTION.
