I would like to invite everyone, my friends from the UK to the far reaches of Australia, to please join and support this group. The village of Pictou is the victim of the Northern Pulp mill. The mill has operated for years in gross violation of the Kyoto protocols and emits massive amounts of carcinogens and dangerous chemicals generally called PM2.5. The Nova Scotia government has for years refused to shut down or do anything about the mill. I have spoken with several persons charged with monitoring the mill’s emissions who each independently (and on condition of anonymity) informed me that the mill’s violations often go into the dangerous extremes but they have been ordered to stand down when it does. This is because Nova Scotia government historically puts business above humanity and environment. In fact, the current Minister of Environment of Nova Scotia is not a scientist, a naturalist, an ecologist, nor does he have any any kind of background in natural science. He’s nothing but a MBA. In an interview last week, he bald-faced lied and stated there is no evidence the mill presents a threat to anyone in the village of Pictou. Please, if nothing else, join the group as a show of support. The mill may be a local problem but we live in a time where worldwide governments have said “to hell with the environment!” And almost everyone one of you are facing fracking being forced on you, GMOs being forced into your food system, and worse. Only solidarity one battle at a time is going to turn this around. I am hoping to make this issue a matter of international embarrassment for the government of Nova Scotia, thus forcing them to act.
