PICTOU LANDING FILM LINK https://youtu.be/DDYwZO9Ot44

Please watch this short film I made for my friends in Pictou, Nova Scotia Canada. You may have heard me sing about the First Nations people in Pictou Landing that have endured years of pollution from the mill.

Boat Harbour is considered one of Canada's worst cases of environmental racism.

Declare your support for the closure of Boat Harbour on schedule at https://www.friendsofthenorthumberlan... Please share this film with friends and family

PICTOU LANDING FILM - BACKSTORY

BOAT HARBOUR Accessible only through the woods / gated road. I was taken on a guided tour to see where the mill discharges their pulp waste. Boat Harbour, located in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada was originally used by Pictou Landing First Nation people for fishing, hunting and recreation. In the 1960’s an effluent treatment facility was constructed to discharge the Pulp Mill's waste into boat harbour. The First Nations people were promised this would not effect Boat Harbour or their way of life. Within days of operation all aquatic life died rendering it completely unusable. Boat Harbour is now polluted with mercury, dioxins, furans, chloride, and other toxic heavy metals The current owners of the mill Northern Pulp / Paper Excellence Canada are pushing to extend the use of Boat Harbour past the legislated closure date of 2020

The Mill has been granted multiple extensions since 1995. After 50+ Years of pollution and broken promises. "Boat Harbour must close on schedule, January 31, 2020. We expect nothing less.” - Chief Andrea Paul, Pictou Landing First Nation.
