HALIFAX - The province's environment minister is still awaiting to hear from Northern Pulp regarding their plans for Boat Harbour, as the company has one year until its closure.

Environment minister Margaret Miller said she is expecting to get a submission by months end.

"I know staff has been working with them and we're expecting something at the end of the month but we haven't received anything yet or any clear indication of what exactly is coming in," she said.

In an emailed statement, Northern Pulp indicated the mill will register the project with the province this month.

NDP leader Gary Burrill said Northern Pulp continues to let down residents of the province.

"If you were to write a text about bad corporate citizenship, Northern Pulp would probably be chapter one."
