Thousands of Nova Scotia jobs are in jeopardy in the Northern Pulp mill in Pictou County closes down, which is certain to happen without the government giving the greenlight to a new treatment plant for the mill’s effluent, which it wants to clean and discharge into the Northumberland Strait. The provincial and federal government haven’t done anything but put up roadblocks for the company, which is trying to protect jobs and the environment with its plan.

True North’s Andrew Lawton reports from Nova Scotia, asking why the government isn’t prepared to move the mountains for these workers that it was for SNC-Lavalin employees.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
