The Montreal Gazette reported that effluent from the Irving pulp mill in Saint John, NB, was so toxic, it killed rainbow trout in 239 tests over a five-year period, yet the company was only charged once.
The Gazette quoted Environment Canada’s report to the environmental watchdog for the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The newspaper also said Environment Canada mentioned that a dozen pulp and paper mills in Eastern and Central Canada have repeatedly violated federal environmental laws without being charged.
