MONTAGUE - The Eastern P.E.I. Chamber of Commerce encourages all members and the concerned public to attend a public meeting between Northern Pulp and the P.E.I. standing committee for agriculture and fisheries to be held on Friday, Feb. 16, 10 a.m. at the George Coles Building in Charlottetown.
“The EPEICC’s mission is to disseminate the information from all points of view and keep our membership and the concerned public well informed,” said Russ Compton, vice-president of the EPEICC.
“The EPEICC board of directors feel that it is important that concerned chamber members and the public be informed of the proposed pipeline that will pump effluent directly into the prime fishing grounds of the Northumberland Strait.”
The chamber had requested a public information session with the P.E.I. Fishermen’s Association, Friends of the Northumberland Strait and Northern Pulp, but the Nova Scotia pulp company elected to meet directly with the standing committee.
