  1. Evapen if one has no concerns about environmental effects, one must still consider liability for damages to properties, including depreciated values of residences and cottages along both sides of the Northumberland Strait, which would plummit with pollution of the waters and subsequent loss of fisheries and recreational facilities. This would extend well beyond Pictou County, and would be well into the billions of dollars. Northern Pulp offers no guarantee or plan to reimburse any property owners a cent for this, but, based on their past performance, the unofficial plan is probably be to leave it up to the provincial government and either continue the status quo, or to close the plant and walk away.
