Second mercury dump site alleged near Grassy Narrows being probed by Ontario The Star - 2019-09-23
The province is investigating an allegation of another mercury dump site near the riverside paper mill upstream from Grassy Narrows First Nation, the Star has learned.
The mill, now owned by Domtar, got the tip by phone on May 10 from a former employee of a previous mill owner. The tipster alleged that decades ago mercury was dumped in barrels and buried in a plastic-lined pit. He said he helped prepare the alleged dumping site.
When Grassy Narrows Chief Rudy Turtle got the news, he said, "I was upset, and scared for my people who eat the fish from the river that flows by that site."
