A Nova Scotia First Nation is taking a pointedly direct approach to ensuring that a highly polluted waste water treatment facility on its land is shut down.

Under legislation passed in 2015, the provincial government has committed to closing the Boat Harbour facility by Jan. 31, 2020 – one year from this week – and the Pictou Landing First Nation plans to mark the beginning of an official countdown on Thursday.
