THUNDER BAY, ON, Nov. 14, 2017 (The Chronicle Journal) -Domtar says it has been forthcoming about mercury-contamination issues in the vicinity of its Dryden pulp mill as recently as last summer, contrary to some recent media and First Nation reports.

And both the province and Grassy Narrows First Nation have been kept informed, it says.

The company responded Monday to a Grassy Narrows news release which claimed that both Domtar and the government kept the band in the dark about possible contaminated soil under the mill site.
