Send A Form Letter

The next best thing to sending a letter in your own words.

Fishermen from NS, PEI and NB and Pictou Landing First Nation have requested that the federal government conduct an environmental assessment of Northern Pulp’s proposed new effluent treatment project. The proposal would see 70-90 million litres of treated pulp effluent discharged into the prime fishing grounds of the Northumberland Strait every day.


The decision about whether the federal government will conduct this assessment is made by the federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change. In making her decision, she will consider a number of things, including whether this is an issue of broad public concern.


We need your help to demonstrate that broad public concern exists. Please show your support for the fishermen's request by printing the below letter and sending it to:

The Honourable Catherine McKenna

Minister of Environment and Climate Change House of Commons

Ottawa, Ontario

K1A 0A6

Please make sure you sign your name and include your address.  If you want, write a personal message on your letter.
