‘Who Needs Jobs?’

Marching to close down the local pulp mill that provides employment:

According to a union-sponsored study published last week, the economic fallout would be massive for the province’s rural areas. Close to 2,700 jobs would be lost, including 220 unionized employees at ‘Northern Pulp’. Three of Nova Scotia’s five largest sawmills would close virtually overnight…

“Dressed in red T-shirts, more than 300 people marched through Pictou Landing ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 670 people} Friday to encourage the provincial government to honour an upcoming ‘Northern Pulp’ deadline.

“On Jan. 31, 2020, Northern Pulp has to close its effluent treatment facility at Boat Harbour, N.S., according to provincial legislation. With 118 days until that deadline, Chief Andrea Paul of Pictou Landing says she wants the government to stick to its promise.

I think this is a great opportunity for us to to remind everybody that this is a longstanding battle that we’ve had“,
Paul told CBC’s Information Morning.
We’re very excited about the closure date.”

“After the march, elders and other community members were invited to speak. Shyanna Denny, 16, spoke on behalf of her youth council.

We’re trying to build trust and {one-way} ‘reconciliation’,”
she said.
But we won’t if they don’t meet the deadline.”
{Once again, using so-called ‘reconciliation’ to make sure they get their way…}

“Closing the treatment facility is an important issue for youth because, as they get older, they come to understand more about the history of Boat Harbour, Denny said… Boat Harbour was a tidal estuary called “A’se’k” in the Mi’kmaw language. Mi’kmaq fished and foraged there.

“This week, Northern Pulp released a focus report as the company continues to try to get approval to build a new effluent treatment facility at its Pictou County site. That report is open to public feedback until Nov. 8.

“The march wasn’t only to push the provincial government to meet the promised deadline, but also to express hope the government does not approve Northern Pulp’s proposed new effluent treatment facility. Environment Minister Gordon Wilson will make a decision on the proposed effluent treatment plant by Dec. 17…”

“According to a union-sponsored study published last week, the economic fallout would be massive for the province’s rural areas should the multinational depart. Close to 2,700 jobs would be lost, including ‘Unifor’s 220 unionized employees at ‘Northern Pulp’, the study concluded. Three of Nova Scotia’s five largest sawmills would close virtually overnight, and “many woodlots would not be harvested, and prices would drop for those that are”, the ‘Gardner Pinfold’ analysis warned…”
