FIN Review: The Mill digs deep into Pictou Mill politics


Pictou County remains of two minds about their pulp mill, both a source of economic stability for the town and a place filling Pictou Harbour with dangerous chemicals.

The mill is considered the dirtiest in Canada, but a question looms over this documentary. It is unknown at the beginning whether they’ll clean things up or whether the Nova Scotia government will begin pushing the treated waste into the Northumberland Strait.

There are so many opinions about the issue, and writer-director David Craig lets them shine on their own, allowing the audience to make up their minds about the issue.

This is an important Canadian film and one I’m happy was made. This topic is integral to the area and wholly important.

3.5/5 Stars
