Northern Pulp Nova Scotia Corporation today filed its appeal of the Industrial Approval decision letter received from then Environment Minister Randy Delorey on July 9, 2015.

Under section 138 of the Environment Act, this filing is a formal part of the Industrial Approval appeal process.

Northern Pulp’s primary objective is to achieve through dialogue with government and First Nations an Industrial Approval which allows us to meet our environmental responsibility, therefore making any court process unnecessary. Conversations underway with government are increasingly constructive.

This is a unique time for Pictou County, and for Nova Scotia as a whole, in that Northern Pulp Nova Scotia Corporation has owners who are committed to a long term environmentally responsible, viable operation in the province.
