Our Group

People of Pictou County have been concerned about the pollution produced by the pulp mill since it began operations in 1967, but the desire to maintain jobs had historically overpowered the voices of the concerned (see attached ‘Concerned residents 2007.pdf’ PDF coming soon!).

Today, as a result of social media connections, the voices of the concerned have come together and widespread support for cleaning up the mill has been identified.


The items listed in Figure 2 represent what the group has been doing and aims to achieve in the short term.
