PC Leader Calls For Better Security Of Former Bowater Lands

Its almost two years since the Bowater Mersey paper mill in Brooklyn closed for good and its been a year since the former NDP government secured the company's wood lands in Western Nova Scotia. Since then however, the province's Opposition leader says the valuable forested lands scattered from Yarmouth to Sydney have been left in a holding pattern. Jamie Baillie is worried the lands are unprotected with no law in place dealing with access to them.

Baillie plans to raise the issue in the Nova Scotia Legislature during its spring sitting in March or April.
