HALIFAX, NS, Aug. 6, 2014 (CBC) -Peter MacKay, the MP for Central Nova, said the federal government is watching the "dire" situation at the Northern Pulp mill but would not weigh in on how to resolve the problem.

MacKay represents the area that includes Pictou, where locals have reported smog from the Abercrombie Point mill gets into their clothes, homes, cars and lungs. They say the haze from the mill has a sulphur-like smell and drifts across the town.
