Northern Pulp and fishers agree to injunction settlement

Paper Excellence News

In December 2018 Northern Pulp applied to the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia for an injunction prohibiting any interference with the activities of Northern Pulp and its contractors in conducting work on the waters in Pictou Harbour, Caribou Channel and the Northumberland Strait.

It was found that Northern Pulp was entitled to the injunction at a hearing on December 18,

2018. Northern Pulp was granted an interim injunction at that time.

Northern Pulp, and owner Paper Excellence, are pleased that the legal action by Northern Pulp has been resolved to Northern Pulp’s satisfaction through an agreement and the anticipated issuance by the Court of a permanent injunction. This permanent injunction will allow the company’s work to proceed.
