June 10, 2019 – Two British Columbia mills owned by Paper Excellence Canada were fined last year by the province for violating the terms of their permits.

Mackenzie Pulp Mill Corporation was fined more than $81,000, and Skookumchuck Pulp Mill was fined $2,250.

According to the province's quarterly environmental enforcement summary, the Mackenzie Pulp Mill received three administrative monetary penalties totalling $81,100 for violating its waste discharge permit by failing to maintain its recovery boiler ($14,000), failing to comply with permit limits for bivalent sulphur compounds ($31,600), and failing to comply with permit limits for particulate matter ($35,500).

Skookumchuck Pulp was fined with an administrative penalty of $2,250 for failure to comply with a permit, which required the company to provide notification prior to implementing changes to any process that may adversely affect the quality and/or quantity of discharges.

CKPG, a Prince George, B.C. television station, first reported the Mackenzie Pulp fine.
