Northern Pulp's decision not to hold public consultations before filing its environmental assessment has received blowback from groups representing Northumberland fishermen.

In a statement issued from Friends of the Northumberland Strait, the group decries the company's decision, stating that, "Concerned citizens and fishermen say they are appalled that Northern Pulp does not plan to hold any open houses or public consultation before filing for environmental assessment."
