A challenge common to rural communities the world over is taking place in Pictou County, Nova Scotia where there is sharp division over the fate of the local pulp mill. To correct a historic injustice the mill must, by law, stop flowing pulp effluent into the tidal lagoon next to the Mi’kmaq community of Pictou Landing. To keep operating the mill has proposed a controversial plan to redirect its effluent into the environmentally sensitive fishing grounds of the Northumberland Strait. Fishermen say “No Pipe”. The mill says “No Pipe No Mill”. A line has been drawn and with jobs at stake the issue has reached a boiling point.
