Global News reports that Northern Pulp received a $697.50 summary offence ticket from Nova Scotia Environment for failing three tests out of the last 10 on its power boiler. The premier has “asked the department to review its summary fines as a result” and is quoted: “I think it’s an important time to look at those because there needs to be a deterrent. There needs to be a financial deterrent and I fully expect to hear from the minister and the department… Let them do their work and we’ll go from there.” Read more at Global News (Oct 10, 2017)
