No Pipeline in Northmberland Strait

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The Northern Pulp Nova Scotia Corporation’s proposed an effluent treatment and disposal system for Abercrombie Point Mill that would release 70-90 million litres of pulp, through 6 subsea pipes, into the Northumberland Strait daily.

Pulp is a fibrous material made by chemically or mechanically separating fibres from wood, fiber crops, waste paper, or rags. The Nova Scotia side of the Strait have aggressive approaches as to how to solve the problem of the strait. They are also more concerned with the pollution and long-term effects the pipe will have on the environment.

Prince Edward Island residents have not spoken out about the effects the pipe will have on our water, beaches, etc. For our Global Issues project, Kim Bain and myself, Miranda Merritt wanted to bring awareness on this issue to Prince Edward Island and to get students and residents to sign this petition to show involvement on the stand up against these pipes being built.
