No accurate number on those displaced by Nova Scotia mill closure, officials say

HALIFAX — Officials with the transition team tasked with helping forestry sector workers in Nova Scotia displaced by the closure of the Northern Pulp Mill say they don't have an accurate picture yet of how many people need help.

The deputy minister of the province's Lands and Forestry Department says the number is "a moving target" because many of those who did contract work for Northern Pulp have been picked up by other mills.
