Port Hawkesbury Paper pre-trial conference date set
SYDNEY (From news reports) -- A pre-trial conference has been set for the largest leaseholder of Crown land in Eastern Nova Scotia that is charged with violating the Wildlife Habitat and Watercourse Protection Regulations.

Port Hawkesbury Paper, located in Point Tupper, is charged with three violations of the regulations that were alleged to have occurred between January and March 2019.

The offences occurred during the harvesting of trees at Peggy Allan Lake in Grand Mira North.

The company is charged with failing to leave 10 living or partially living trees for each hectare cut; failing to leave at least one clump of no fewer than 30 trees for each eight hectares cuts; and failing to ensure clumps of trees were situated at least 20 metres from the edge of the forest stand being cut.

The company, which manages over 58 per cent of forested land in the region, previously entered not guilty pleas to the charges and was assigned a provincial court trial date of Jan. 18-20.

A pre-trial conference will examine issues that could arise during a trial and that could be resolved prior to the start of the trial.

The pre-trial is now set for Oct. 6.
