Subject: I support Nova Scotia's forestry families
I respectfully call on you and your government to extend the January 2020 Boat Harbour Act deadline.
An extension will allow Northern Pulp and Paper Excellence the time required to commission and construct a new, environmentally responsible onsite treatment system.
The continued operation of Northern Pulp is vitally important to the livelihoods of its more than 330 direct employees, as well as thousands of contractors across the province in industries ranging from forestry, silviculture, trucking, and many more whose businesses rely heavily on Northern Pulp.
Thousands across the province of Nova Scotia will be negatively impacted should Northern Pulps close due to any decision to uphold the current date within the Act.
I urge you to extend the deadline, allowing our province's $2.1 billion forest industry to continue to thrive each year and keep our skilled workers here at home in Nova Scotia.
Thank you for your kind attention to this matter,
A concerned supporter of Nova Scotia’s forest industry
