ABERCROMBIE POINT, NS, Aug. 28, 2013 (Local News) -The air was thick at Abercrombie Point Tuesday morning, as Pictou County's three MLAs gathered at Northern Pulp for meetings with the directors there.

"Because of the wind and the high humidity, it's absolutely our worst day," said John Hamm, the former premier who now serves as the chair of the mills board of directors.

"When you have this high humidity, the plume has trouble going up. Of course the wind direction is taking it right into the harbor. When we have a new precipitator we'll have far less particulate matter and it will go up better."
