Big Concerns Raised in Nova Scotia

Erin is receiving high numbers of inquiries from people in Pictou County, Nova Scotia who are concerned that the excessive rate of cancer and respiratory illness in their community could be attributable to environmental contamination caused by the emissions from Northern Pulp.

One person wrote, “Our children have chronic breathing problems (high rates of asthma and other respiratory diseases) and our peers and elders are dying of cancer and cardiopulmonary diseases (high rates of cancer, leukemia, etc).”

“I am in discussions with my environmental engineer team about this issue and we will respond once we have more knowledge,” Erin Brockovich said.
