Groups urge rejection of mill's pipeline plan

Groups that have voiced concerns about a Nova Scotia pulp mill's plan to pump millions of litres of treated wastewater into the Northumberland Strait are urging the province to reject the proposal. The Town of Pictou, Pictou Landing First Nation, fishermen from across the Maritimes and the environmental group Friends of the Northumberland Strait say Northern Pulp's focus report is missing critical information. They also say the company's assertion that there will be no significant lasting harm to the environment and human health is not credible or supported by science.
