Lawyers for Friends of the Northumberland Strait say Nova Scotia’s environment minister has a conflict of interest and have asked her to step away from an environmental assessment of Northern Pulp’s plan take effluent from a pulp mill and dump it in the middle of the Strait.

Ecojustice sent Environment Minister Margaret Miller a letter this week asking her to recuse herself and delegate her authority to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency given “the significant and financial interest” the province has in ensuring the assessment is concluded as quickly as possible.
