  1. Thank you for your efforts in reporting on this very controversial issue in the Pictou County area. We need more unbiased and sound investigation into this old and weary Mill. It has not run efficiently, cleanly, or introduced any new positive value to our lovely community. Frankly, from my perspective, it’s hazardous and toxic waste to land, air, and sea has done enough harm.

  2. Why indeed is the air monitoring unit de-commissioned? And why wasn’t there, all along, another monitoring unit in the heights area of Pictou or somewhat to the east of this location? The Granton location is west and south of NP. That unit would only be useful as a monitoring unit when the winds predominate from the north and east. Much of the year and most of the summer, the wind from the stacks at NP blows the emissions toward Pictou; the winds are south and west for much of the year. Governments are responsible for best practices in monitoring things that cause harm to residents; time and time again the government has miserably failed in this regard when it comes to pulp mill emissions and effluent in the waters.

    Sludge burning??
    Airborne dioxins and furans , what an improvement! And the wind direction will still be placing Pictou Town and Pictou Landing in harm’s way.

    If approved, the workers at the site would have Boat Harbour right alongside them, and the smell from the sludge ponds , the carcinogenic emissions from burning the sludge and the effluent in the Strait will just disappear- pixie-dust like?
