HALIFAX, NS, Nov. 20, 2019 (CBC) -Groups representing fishermen, First Nations and others in the Pictou, N.S., area called on the provincial government Tuesday to reject a controversial proposal to pipe treated pulp mill effluent into the Northumberland Strait.

At a news conference in the town, group spokespersons argued Northern Pulp has not made the case to justify a new waste-treatment facility for the aging pulp mill at Abercrombie Point, Pictou County.

"I don't think they put much attention to detail about fishing activity. A lot of it's just wrong," said Colton Cameron, a fisherman from Caribou, the nearest port to the proposed outfall.
