PULP MILL PRES­SURES STORE TO CAN­CEL BOOK SIGN­ING

Ottawa Citizen - - POLITICS -

A Nova Sco­tia MLA is rais­ing con­cerns about free­dom of speech af­ter a Toronto-based re­tail chain can­celled a lo­cal book sign­ing amid con­tro­versy over the book’s por­trayal of the North­ern Pulp Nova Sco­tia Corp. pulp mill. Pic­tou West MLA Karla MacFar­lane says can­celling the book sign­ing at the Coles book­store in New Glas­gow, N.S., in­fringes on free­dom of speech. MacFar­lane says the mill’s ef­forts ap­pear to have back­fired as she pre­dicts Joan Bax­ter’s book The Mill: Fifty Years of Pulp and Protest will likely sell out.
