    For fifty years, the pulp mill near Pictou in northern Nova Scotia has buoyed the local economy and found support from governments at all levels But it has also pulped millions of acres of forests, spewed millions of tonnes of noxious emissions into the air, consumed quadrillions of litres of fresh water and then pumped them out again as toxic effluent into nearby Boat HaFor fifty years, the pulp mill near Pictou in northern Nova Scotia has buoyed the local economy and found support from governments at all levels But it has also pulped millions of acres of forests, spewed millions of tonnes of noxious emissions into the air, consumed quadrillions of litres of fresh water and then pumped them out again as toxic effluent into nearby Boat Harbour, and eventually into the Northumberland Strait.From the day it began operation in 1967, the mill has fomented protest and created deep divisions and tensions in northern Nova Scotia This story is about people whose livelihoods depend on the pulp mill and who are willing to live with the smell of money It s about people whose well being, health, homes, water, air, and businesses have been harmed by the mill s emissions and effluent It s about the heartache such divisions cause and about people who, for the sake of peace, keep their thoughts about the mill to themselves.
